The Premier's ANZAC Prize
The Premier’s Anzac Prize is proudly presented in partnership with RSL Queensland. Each year, eight students and two adult teacher chaperones will be selected to visit the battlefields of Europe where Australian troops fought during World War I.
This a great opportunity for students to see first hand the places where the ANZACs fought, particularly the Western Front, and gain a better understanding of what they went through all those years ago.
Each year, applications open from Term 1 and close in Term 3 the year before travel.
This competition is open to Queensland based students only and is limited to 2 applicants per school.
The 2024 Premier’s Anzac Prize is open now for applications (see below).
Queensland students depart on an educational trip of a lifetime to European battlefields.
Young Historians' Workshop
