Applications for the final round close on Friday 27 September 2013. Please apply as early in the year as possible, to increase your student’s chances of being selected.
Advice for teachers
The selection panel will consider students for the month in which they are nominated. However, in months where competition is robust, the selection panel may decide to allow particularly strong applicants to remain eligible for subsequent months. It is therefore a good idea to apply as early in the year as possible, to increase your student’s chances of being selected.
Please nominate only one student from your school, as the selection panel will only consider one application per school per year.
Finalists will be announced in the Herald Sun newspaper and will be profiled in the VCAA Bulletin. They will be contacted by the VCAA for a brief interview about their achievements. Finalists will receive a three month subscription to the Herald Sun newspaper and the will receive their awards at a ceremony following the end of year examination period.
All finalists will receive a computer prize donated by Lenovo Australia.
One overall achiever will be announced at the ceremony and receive a special prize.
