Simpson Prize Competition

The Simpson Prize Competition encourages participants to explore the significance of the Anzac experience and what it has meant for Australia. Applications are now open!

Eight winners are chosen from each State and Territory with the opportunity to visit overseas battlefields and participate in Anzac Day commemorations.

To enter, students respond to the 2020 contest question: Allied victory brought an end to war, suffering, and challenges for Australia and its people. To what extent do experiences of 1919 support this view?

The annual research-based challenge honours John Simpson Kirkpatrick, the Gallipoli soldier who transported casualties on Duffy, his donkey.

The closing date for entries is 8 November 2019.
