ACT STUDENT CITIZENSHIP AWARDS 2015
ACT students and schools have the opportunity to be nominated for awards for voluntary community service and demonstration of good citizenship.
The awards are made by The Order of Australia Association on the recommendation of an independent selection panel.
There are two types of award:
- Awards for outstanding individual leadership and achievement by year 11 and 12 students or in a gap year.
- Awards for meritorious group activity in community service and citizenship projects for students between kindergarten and year 10.
Individual awards are marked by an engraved medallion and a certificate.
The recipient schools receive an engraved plaque to signify the group awards.
Nominations are called from principals of schools and colleges by the last day of term 3.
Awards are given at a special presentation ceremony in November in each year.
These awards are made under the auspices of the ACT Branch of the Order of Australia Association which seeks to foster love and pride in active Australian citizenship, most particularly in the younger members of the community. The association membership is made up of people who have received an award in the Order of Australia but these student awards have no direct connection with the Order of Australia itself.
