VCE Leadership Awards

About the Awards

The VCE Leadership Awards recognise the efforts of VCE students in promoting leadership and participation in their school and local community. VCE Leadership students demonstrate initiative, inspire others, work well in a team and are committed to making a difference. They take an interest in activities such as the arts, sport, debating and public speaking; they may campaign for social justice and environmental protection and/or raise funds for worthy causes.

The VCE Leadership Awards are open to government, Catholic and independent school students. Mature age students are also encouraged to apply for these awards.

The VCE Leader of the Year will be announced at a ceremony in late November. The VCE Leader and finalists will receive a certificate, an engraved trophy and prizes. The finalists will also be profiled in the VCAA Bulletin and featured on the VCAA website.

For more information contact the Media and Communications team on (03) 9032 1629 or email: vcaa@edumail.vic.gov.au
