Would you like to win a chance to see the battlefields of the Western Front?
RSL Queensland has partnered with the Department of Education to sponsor the Premier’s Anzac Prize for the next three years. Each year, eight students will be selected to visit the battlefields of Europe where Australian troops fought during World War I.
It’s a great opportunity for students to see firsthand the places where our ANZACs fought, and to gain a better understanding of what they went through.
Who can enter?
The Premier’s Anzac Prize is open to all eligible Year 8-11 Queensland students. To enter, students need to submit a multimedia presentation addressing the following question:
How relevant for young Australians today is the Anzac Spirit, which was forged and shaped by the experiences of earlier generations in twentieth century conflicts in places far from home?
Applications must be received by the Department of Education by 5pm on Friday 20 September.

The Commemoration modules for Years 7-10 and Years 11-12 contain lots of information about the Australian experience of World War I and other conflicts, and the ANZAC tradition. And there’s also a research guide in the 2nd Australian Light Horse Regiment module, which steps you through the various sources you can use to research your topic.
