Victorian Global Learning Awards
The annual Victorian Global Learning Awards celebrate international student excellence and recognise schools and homestay families.
Memorandum Number: 008/2021
You can now submit your nominations for your year 11 and 12 international students who studied in these year levels in 2020, along with nominations for the Homestay Family of the Year and Excellence in Global Learning Award.
The annual Victorian Global Learning Awards celebrate international student excellence and recognise schools and homestay families for outstanding global learning and engagement. The awards are open to all current Victorian year 11 and 12 international school students, government and non-government schools and their homestay families.
The following changes have been made based on a review of the awards, and school and student feedback:
- Award selection criteria have been updated to reflect the impact of 2020 on students, this includes a focus on recognising students’ online activities, shorter word limits and an overall simplification of the selection criteria.
- There is a new award category—the Resilience and Innovation Award to recognise students’ outstanding abilities to overcome obstacles and challenges to achieve in academic and/or non-academic fields.
- The former Sports Achievement Award now includes health-related studies and achievements, and has been renamed the Health and Sports Achievement Award.
- Schools can now only submit one nomination per student, across standard, study abroad and full-fee dependant application categories.
To view the full list of award categories, and access the selection criteria and nominations portal, go to the Victorian Global Learning Awards website.
Nominations close on Friday 12 March.
