Simpson Prize 2008
On Tuesday 18 March, the Minister for Veterans' Affairs announced the winners of the Simpson Prize for 2008. The Simpson Prize is a national competition for year 9 and 10 students which sees eight students, one from each State and Territory, accompanied by two teachers, flown to Gallipoli to attend the Dawn Service and other ANZAC Day ceremonies. The students travelling to Turkey will be contributing to the Memorial blog to share the experiences of their trip.
The Memorial provides a battlefield tour guide for the group and hosted a visit for both winner and runner-up students touring the galleries and behind-the-scenes areas.
