The Simpson Prize is a great opportunity for year 9 and 10 students to participate in a nationwide essay competition, giving them the chance to win an unforgettable 2 week trip to Turkey as well as a prepartory trip to Canberra.
THIS YEAR'S QUESTION IS:
“How well does the Anzac legend tell the story of individual Australian soldiers during World War One?”
The 2014 Simpson Prize Question requires students to respond to the question using both the 2014 Simpson Prize Australian War Memorial Source Selection (http://www.awm.gov.au/simpson-prize-question-2014/) and their own research. It is expected that students will make effective use of a minimum of 3 of the sources. It is also expected that up to half of their response will make use of information drawn from their own knowledge and research.
Students: can either write an essay of 1200 - 1500 words,
or prepare an audio visual presentation of not more than 10 minutes.
