Anika Lawrence Yr 10

Congratulations to Year 10 student Anika Lawrence who was recently nominated for WA Music (WAM) Song of the Year for her original song ‘Just Friends' in the 14 and under category.

This year there were more entries than ever before in the West Australian Music's annual songwriting competition, so to be one of five chosen in a category is an amazing achievement.

Anika, who is in the Specialist Music Program was featured along with other nominees in the June 11 edition of the ED! liftout in The West Australian. 

"I've been writing songs for about five years." Anika says. "I started when I was around nine years old. I liked writing stories, I loved music and I was inspired by Taylor Swift and her songwriting skills so I decided to start writing myself."

"Anika has been very lucky to have such wonderful and supportive music teachers in the CVC Specialist Music Program and without that support from Ms Harrison, Ms Spina and Mr Culverwell she would not have achieved such great results with her music." said Anika's mum Anna. 

Anika was also a finalist in the Fairbridge Festival Quest Youth Songwriting competition earlier this year.

The winners will be announced on June 26 and the WAM Song of the Year Awards Party at Freo.Social in Fremantle.  

We wish Anika the best of luck!
