2015 VicSRC Recognition Awards

The 2015 VicSRC Recognition Awards are about celebrating the achievements of SRCs and presenting examples of best practice in student voice, student led action and student participation. 

Taking place on Thursday 29 October 2015 and attended by the Minister for Education, the awards show how together, we are transforming the nature of our education system for the better. Now that is something to celebrate!

In 2014, we had over 50 nominations from 28 schools across 5 award categories. If last year is anything to go by, we can't waiy to see this year's crop of nominations come through. Check out the winning videos here.

We encourage all students and schools to put their hats in the ring and get involved. A total of $15,000 in grants is available across 5 categories:

  • Newsboys Foundation Youth Leadership Award (11-18 years)
  • Group Action Award
  • Outstanding SRC of the Year Award
  • SRC Teacher Advisor Award
  • Whole School Approach to Student Voice Award


How to nominate

1. Read through the 2015 VicSRC Recognition Awards Info Pack (PDF)

2. Think about your answers to the nomination questions for each category

3. Create a 1-2 minute video (max) which showcases your story and demonstrates best practice in supporting student voice in any of the five award categories

4. Upload your video to YouTube, Vimeo, Google Drive or Dropbox and copy the link

5. Fill out the online form: us to your video.

Have fun, be creative and share your story in the most authentic way for you! Nominations close at 5pm, Friday 11 September. 


Things to keep in mind

You can nominate for more than one category! But you must do separate applications for each nomination. Five nominations = 5 videos.

You don’t need to be a whiz with technology to create your video. If you don’t have access to a video camera, use a smart phone or digital camera to shoot your footage. You can then use basic editing software to edit together your video.

Alternatively, you can check with your school to see if you can borrow equipment to help with bringing your video to life. Get creative and have fun!
