There are two History competitions open to all students!
National History Challenge (closing date 30 August) - The theme for this year's challenge is 'People and Power' and students from all year levels can submit various formats for this competition. We are permitted to send six entries per year group and most students may be able to craft an assignment they have done into the theme. All participants receive a certificate of participation. For more information see http://historychallenge.org.au/
The Simpson Prize - (closing date 8 November) - This prize is open to Year 9 and 10 students. Students have to write the following essay using a variety of primary and secondary sources: “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? Those students successful win a tour overseas of battlefields where Australians fought in World War I. For more information see http://www.simpsonprize.org/
Please see myself, Mr East or your History teacher if you are interested in applying.
