2018 Oxley Spirit of Anzac Award

09 March 2018

I am excited to formally announce that entries are now open for the 2018 Oxley Electorate Spirit of ANZAC Award.

Like 2017, this will be a competition open to students in Year 11 who will be invited to submit a short essay, poem or piece of artwork on what the spirit of ANZAC means to them.

After feedback from students last year, the recipient judged to be awarded first prize will receive a new Apple iPad.

Entries for students are open now and close on Thursday 29th March at the end of term 1. (Entries now extended to April 17th)

A selection committee consisting of representatives from local RSL Sub Branches will select the most worthy recipient to be awarded first place along with 5 other highly commended awards.

The recipient along with 5 other highly commended entries will be announced in the lead up to Anzac Day.

Anzac Day holds a special place in the hearts of many Australians as we pay our respects to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

I’m looking forward to receiving entries from students across the electorate as to what this special commemoration means to them.
