The Youth Choices Student Film Competition is a joint project between Constable Care Child Safety Foundation and WA Police Force Community Engagement.

This competition challenges WA high school students to share their views and experiences on issues that matter to them, by creating a 3 minute short film. This joint project began in 2016 when Constable Care Child Safety Foundation combined their Your Call Schools Competition with WA Police Force’s Students Advising Youth Project.

The Students Advising Youth Project (SAY Project) was initiated by Peel District Crime Prevention Officer, Senior Constable Tam McKeown in 2013 and involved students from the Comet Bay College in Secret Harbour. The Your SAY Project was run as a one school pilot project in 2013, which proved extremely successful. The project broadened to be open to the 400,000 high school students in the State in 2014. It involved making a short 2 minute film on an anti-drug theme. In 2014 34 submissions were received from 20 schools (8 regional/14 Metro). The primary sponsor of the project was the Lions Club of Mandurah

Since joining forces in 2016, the Your Call Student Film Compeition has grown each year. In 2019 more than 100 registrations were received from students across the state.
