VCE Leadership Awards 2020

Principals/Directors, VCE Coordinators and VCE Teachers

Applications for the 2020 VCE Leadership Awards open on Monday 24 August 2020.

This is an opportunity to recognise the important and innovative community work that VCE students are doing and highlight examples of exemplary leadership during this period.

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.

This year school leaders are being asked to nominate appropriate candidates for the awards.

The application period for the 2020 awards will close on Monday 7 September 2020.

Action required

Principals/Directors should ensure VCE coordinators and VCE teachers are aware that VCE Leadership Award applications are open and that they promote the VCE Leadership Awards widely to students.
