The Premier's ANZAC Spirit School Prize provides the opportunity for a small number of students to attend a fully-funded international study tour. Since 2008 the study tour has visited Belgium, France, Singapore, Korea and Gallipoli.
This year’s winners will be led on a study tour of Vietnam by the Premier’s ANZAC Spirit Prize Manager from the Department for Education and Child Development, a teacher from Lock Area School and the President of the SA Branch of the Returned and Services League of Australia (RSL-SA).
The competition was open to all students in South Australia studying year 9 or 10 in term 4, 2015 and term 1, 2016.
In 2016 students entering the competition were required to respond to the following task:
'Much has been written about how service men and women in World War 1 typified the Anzac spirit. Using a range of sources, describe the journey of a South Australian man or woman who served on the Western Front during World War 1.'
