The Queensland Department of Education and the Consulate of Italy in Brisbane, are proud to support the 2019–2020 StuditaliA Prize – an initiative to promote excellence in Italian language studies in Queensland schools and reward the high achievement of Year 12 students of Italian.
In its 25th year, the prize provides students with the opportunity to undertake a 4-week immersion experience in Italy and includes a period of work experience while in-country enhancing career opportunities. Students will be able to enhance their language proficiency and deepen their knowledge of Italy's society and culture by being actively engaged in new environments.
Students will complete learning blogs that reflect and share their language learning and cultural experiences and lead to deeper understanding and global competence.
