“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?
The Simpson Prize requires you to respond to the question above using both the Simpson Prize Australian War Memorial source selection (below) and your own research.
You are encouraged to agree with, debate with, or challenge the statement from a variety of perspectives – individual, national, and global – and to use sources in a variety of forms.
You are expected to make effective use of a minimum of three of the sources listed below. Up to half of your response should also make use of information drawn from your own knowledge and research.
Information about word or time limits, the closing date, entry forms, and judging can be found at the Simpson Prize official website.
Note: students who submit winning entries for this year’s Simpson Prize question will travel in 2020.
The competition is funded by the Australian Department of Education and run by the History Teachers’ Association of Australia.
