 SIMPSON PRIZE

The Simpson Prize is a national competition for Year 9 and 10 students. The competition encourages participants to focus on the significance of Anzac Day and to consider what Anzac Day means to them and to Australia.

The student winners, runners-up and teacher chaperones enjoy a three-day trip to Canberra where they visit several of the capital's museums and institutions and attend the presentation ceremony at Parliament House.

THIS YEAR'S QUESTION (2022) IS:

“To what extent have the Gallipoli campaign and the Western Front overshadowed other significant aspects of Australian's experience of the First World War?”
