NAIDOC WEEK FACEBOOK QUIZ

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated by Australians from all walks of life.

This week, we invite all Samoan citizens and permanent residents, currently residing in Samoa, and aged 18 years or over to participate in a Facebook Quiz in support of this year’s NAIDOC week.

 

NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself.

HOW IT WORKS

The NAIDOC Week Quiz will run from Monday 5 to Friday 9 July 2021 on our Facebook page (@AusHCSamoa).

Each day, after 9.00am (WST), one question will be published to the Facebook page.  Participants have until 4.00pm (WST) that same day to answer the question.

To be in to win, participants will need to:

  • Follow the Facebook page (@AusHCSamoa) by clicking the ‘Like’ button below the cover photo; and
  • Answer the question correctly by commenting on the post.

    Entry is free.

    Participants are encouraged to answer as many questions as they like, although they can only answer each question once.

    PRIZES

    Those that answer correctly each day will go into a draw to win a prize mix of goods from Australia.

    Winners will be chosen randomly.

    Prize pack may include some of the following items:

  • Australian made ‘Keep Cup’

The winners of the daily prizes together with the correct answer will be announced on the Facebook page (@AusHCSamoa) each day after 4.00pm (WST).
