VCE Leadership Awards 2017

Main Points

Applications for this year’s VCE Leadership Awards are now open.

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. Nominees may participate in activities associated with the arts, sport, debating and public speaking. They may campaign for social justice, environmental protection and/or fundraising.

The application period for the 2017 Awards will close on Friday 11 August 2017.

VCE Leaders will be selected in mid-August 2017. Each Leader will then be invited to meet with the VCAA selection panel in October for a ten-minute interview after which the VCE Leader of the Year will be selected.
