The Simpson Prize is a national competition for Year 9 and 10 students. The competition encourages participants to focus on the significance of Anzac Day and to consider what Anzac Day means to them and to Australia.
The student winners, runners-up and teacher chaperones from each state and territory enjoy a two-day trip to Canberra where they visit several of the capital’s museums and institutions, attend the presentation ceremony, and enjoy a special dinner.
Accompanied by two teacher chaperones and a historian from the Australian War Memorial, the eight state and territory student winners will then travel to overseas battlefields.
For this year’s competition, entrants are asked to respond to the question “How do lesser known stories from the Western Front expand our understanding of the Australian experience of the First World War?”
Entries are open until Friday 6 November.
