Co-Lab Youth Road Safety Challenge

The 2019 Co-Lab winning team

Ideas by young people, for young people

This March, we’re taking Co-Lab on the road to Rockhampton.

Now in its fifth year, Co-Lab is our annual event where young Queenslanders come together and channel their creativity and enthusiasm to create a real road safety campaign aimed at young drivers.

The team that pitches the best idea on the day wins a prize and then gets to work with advertising professionals to bring their campaign to life. They’ll go behind the scenes to see how it's done, from concept development and testing through to production and launch.

And we’re off! 2020 applications have now closed – stay tuned for more updates.

75 young Queenslanders came together to tackle the challenge of encouraging young people to consider safety when buying their first car. The winning team developed the 'You’re no dummy' campaign – check out the video below to see how it was brought to life!

“To other young people that are thinking of going to Co-Lab I would say just do it, It's a great opportunity to share your ideas, meet new people and create something amazing." - Xanthe Johnston, winning team member, 2017

“I think our idea will change the minds of people our age and impact the way they approach deaths in our roads” – Mikaela Lawlor, winning team member, 2017
