Religion, the arts, mental health and animal welfare – that’s just some of what’s on the mind of the youth of today.

The Examiner’s annual Youth Network program officially launched its 2017 publication Momentum on Wednesday night.

The program involves up to 20 students from Launceston high schools and colleges, who develop and produce a newspaper over eight weeks, under the guiding hands of Examiner staff.

The paper will be distributed to schools this week, and a 3D issue is available to view at examiner.com.au.

A youth photography competition has been launched as part of the project.

Keen snappers aged 13 to 25 are invited to email their photo, plus full name, age, title and description to features@examiner.com.au for the chance to win a $100 Harvey Norman voucher.

Entries close on October 20.
