History Competitions – Something for Everyone!
17 Jul 18
History competitions are a great way to motivate and reward your students and raise the profile of History in your school community. There are strong links to the curriculum, and students can often use school assessments and projects as their entries. If you have ever had the chance to attend an awards ceremony or travel with competition winners, you will know the profound impact the competitions have on their learning and their personal development.
Plus, there are great travel and competition-judging opportunities for teachers too!
Some History competitions we recommend are:
- Premier’s Spirit of ANZAC Prize
- The Simpson Prize
- HTAV Historical Fiction Competition
- National History Challenge
- Australian History Competition
- John Button School Prize
