The Queensland Premiers ANZAC Prize

RSL Queensland has partnered with the Department of Education to sponsor the Premier’s ANZAC Prize. Each year, eight students will be selected to visit the battlefields of Europe where Australian troops fought during World War I.
This a great opportunity for students to see firsthand the places where our ANZACs fought, particularly the Western Front, and gain a better understanding of what they went through all those years ago.
Applications open from Semester one the year before travel and close in Term 3.
How To enter
Applicants are required to complete 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?
Applicants are required to submit their multimedia presentation and application form to the Department of Education as outlined in the application form.
