VCE Leadership Awards

About the awards

The VCE Leadership Awards are an opportunity to recognise the important and innovative community work that VCE students are doing and highlight examples of exemplary leadership.

The VCE Leadership Awards are open to government, Catholic and independent school students. Mature age students are also eligible for nomination.

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 or fundraising.

‘For the longest time, I have had a passion for leadership. Not because I want my name on the headline or to be praised for my work. I am driven instead by my love for the success of others. We all have dreams, aspirations and skills that deserve to be highlighted. It is not my wish to display mine to the world but use them to showcase others.’

Lincoln Ingravalle, Leader of the Year 2019

Selection Process

VCE Leaders were selected in early September 2020. Each Leader then met with the VCAA selection panel in mid-September for a 10-minute interview via phone, Skype or Webex, after which the VCE Leader of the Year was selected.

The VCE Leader of the Year will be announced at the VCE Leadership Awards during an online event on Friday 18 September 2020.
