The Premier's ANZAC Prize 

The 2023 Premier’s Anzac Prize is proudly presented in partnership with RSL Queensland. Each year, eight students 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 Semester one the year before travel and close in Term 3.

This competition is open to Queensland based students only and is limited to 2 applicants per school.

The 2023 recipients have now been announced and we congratulate the successful students of the 2023 Premier’s Anzac Prize.
