Win great prizes for you and your school!

To mark the Centenary of Armistice, we are holding competitions for primary and secondary school students.

IMAGINING THE PAST

A century ago, people were both happy and relieved to hear World War I had finally ended. They gathered on the streets, sang and cheered.

To recognise this very important occasion, we’d like kids from all over Queensland to create an artwork to illustrate the theme of “War is Over”.

Create artwork using pencils, textas, paints, computer graphics or even collage – the most important tool will be your imagination!

Imagining the Past is free to enter and open to all Queensland primary school students. 

RSL Education Competition

Prizes

10 District winners will be chosen, with each receiving a $50 book voucher. These entries will become finalists in the state-wide judging.

The overall state winner will receive $250 for themselves and $1,000 for their school.

  • You can only submit one entry.
  • Email your entry to competitions@rsleducation.com.au, including your name, grade, school and email address. Ask an adult to help you create a clear digital copy of your artwork under 5MB in size.

CAPTURING THE PAST

Every man or woman who has served in Australia’s Defence Force (ADF) has a story to tell, and each story helps us understand what it means to serve. But too often these stories remain untold.

You can help us make sure the stories of veterans in your local community are captured, and possibly win $250 for yourself and $1,000 for your school.

Simply interview a Defence veteran – of any age, and from any conflict, peacekeeping mission or disaster relief operation – about their lives, particularly their experiences in the ADF. Then tell their story in an article, podcast or video – how you present the story is up to you!

If you don’t know a veteran, please contact your local RSL Sub Branch. They will be able to help you find someone who can talk with you about their experiences.

Capturing the Past is free to enter and open to all Queensland secondary school students.
