Celina Bugara - SBS National Languages Competition
The SBS National Language Competition asked students a simple question: What does language learning mean to you?
Entrants from across the country submitted short videos in a language other than English. Some students said it made them feel closer to their families, while others said it was fun to expand their skills.
Thousands of entries were received from across Australia, aiming to inspire young people to embrace language learning.
Four winners have been chosen across the categories, with Mandarin, Greek, Swedish and Polish speaking students taking out the top prizes at a ceremony attended by Education Minister Simon Birmingham.
Celina Bugara (Year 11) won the Senior High School category. She received an iPad Pro for herself and another for the school.
"[Speaking Polish] means that I can talk to my family because my grandparents don't speak any English," Miss Bugara told SBS.
"I think it's really important to be in touch with your culture."
