CHOOSING YOUR PROJECT (word limit 2000 words)

Area of Study–It’s best to do something that is related to your degree program. It can also be related to your current work or profession. The reasoning behind this is that we want you to focus on Project Management and how it will relate to your area of interest.
Project proposal does NOT mean a running a business

Consider hosting an event. There are thousands of charities out there that undertake some sort of clever fundraising initiatives. Google away.
Background
You work for a large organisation that has recently introduced PRINCE2 (name of the book) as a required method for managing projects. Several policies, templates and other resources have not yet been developed, which means that you might be required in this.
Your employer wants to improve their profile as being more socially responsible and has decided to allocate up to $50,000, spent over the next 12 months to achieve this goal.
To receive the funding, the project must meet the following criteria:

It is to benefit a community in the Northern Territory, Australia or a target audience in the Northern Territory.
It is to be a unique endeavour
It is to be completed within one (1) year
It is to be limited toa budget between $25,000 and $50,000
It can create income; however, proceeds are to be donated the cause
It should relate to your area of study (degree program). (Bachelor of software engineering)
It is not to include additional sponsorship, grants, donations beyond the $50,000. If the organisation’s staff are required to volunteer in the project during normal work hours the opportunity costs to the organisation’s normal work must be included as an expense.
