RSL Qld logoThe Premier’s Anzac Prize is proudly presented in partnership with RSL Queensland.

Travel restrictions continue to remain in place for Australians due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to these ongoing restrictions and prioritising the health and wellbeing of our students, teachers and community, the Department of Education has cancelled the program for the 2021 Premier’s Anzac Prize and its international tour component.

The annual Premier's Anzac Prize provides a life-changing opportunity for 8 high school students to experience the Anzac tradition first-hand and to see how the Anzac legacy relates to modern Australian life. The department acknowledges the support received for the 2020 recipients from the program’s sponsor, RSL Queensland, in this unusual year and their commitment to the future of the prize.

Program overview

Students

The Premier's Anzac Prize is a highly enriching program for young history enthusiasts. Prize recipients are required to take part in activities that build their knowledge and understanding of the Anzac spirit and its relevance in modern Australian and global contexts.

Tasks include research and commemoration of service people, community engagement and fundraising projects, and participation in a tour of key sites important to Australian war history.

The 2020 Premier’s Anzac Prize recipients were unable to travel as part of their 2020 program. However, the group has demonstrated extraordinary resilience and commitment to continued engagement with the Anzac legacy in their local Queensland communities and it is anticipated they will undertake a tour in the future.
