The Victor Chang School Science Awards

School Science Awards

Established in 2004 in honour of pioneering cardiac surgeon, Dr Victor Chang, the School Science Awards celebrate young, gifted students, and aim to stimulate growth in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subject areas.

The Victor Chang School Science Awards aim to foster and encourage an interest in science among secondary school students, with the goal of promoting careers in STEM as a viable and interesting career path.

The awards are targeted at government and non-government school students in Year 11 in NSW and WA.

Students are nominated by their teachers for their tenacity and commitment in the science classroom. We're looking for outstanding Year 11 science students who deserve the recognition for their efforts in Biology, Physics, Chemistry or other science related subjects. A maximum of two Year 11 students per school can be nominated.

If you would like your school to be involved in an awards ceremony to celebrate School Science Awards winners in your LGA, please contact your relevant council.
