Entry details

The Premier's Anzac Prize is open to all eligible Queensland high school students in years 8 to 11.

Students are asked to address a specific question and develop an historical argument referring to evidence of the Anzac spirit from Australia's involvement in wars and conflicts from Gallipoli through to the present day, and to relate those experiences to positive values and activities in everyday life.

Each state school or accredited non-state school may nominate up to two students only. Entries must be from individuals not groups.

2017 tour

In 2017, the Premier's Anzac Prize will once again give eligible Queensland high school students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the Anzac tradition firsthand. Applications for the 2017 Prize open on Monday 18 April 2016.

For more information, please go to the 2017 Premier's Anzac Prize page.

Judging criteria and process

Entries are assessed against the following criteria:

Additionally, the endorsement provided by the student's teacher (or referee's report for students registered for home education) will be taken into account when assessing the application.

Applications will be shortlisted by an evaluation committee comprising employees of the department and other persons (for example, non-state school teachers and/or representatives from universities from across Queensland).

A selection panel including a serving member of the Australian Defence Force and an Anzac descendant will determine the final eight students.
