Advice for teachers

Students engaged in community activities beyond the school environment are regarded highly. The selection panel will look for students who initiate activities and demonstrate leadership, compassion and/or make a difference outside of established organisations.

While schools may have more than one student who is eligible to apply, only one nomination per school per year will be considered.
