Science Writing Competition for Students

The University of New South Wales is hosting the Bragg Student Prize for Science Writing.

The 2018 Theme is ‘Technology & Tomorrow’

It is an essay competition aimed at students in years 7 to 10 from all states in Australia, which asks students to write an essay (800 words or less) about the impacts of a particular technology on society. Teachers' notes, information for parents and consent forms as well as hints and tips for students are found on the website.

Applications close on 28 August, so there is plenty of time to get you students involved.

The prizes are named for Australia's first Nobel Laureates, William Henry Bragg and William Lawrence Bragg.
