Students celebrate women's suffrage

6 May 2019

Students in Years 6, 7, 8 and 9 from all South Australian education sectors are being invited to take part in a research competition to mark the 125th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in the state.
The competition will provide students with the opportunity to participate researching one of the great democratic achievements of South Australia’s history, and to develop an understanding of the tireless efforts of many that culminated in the passing of the landmark legislation.
Entries are now open and will close on Friday 30 August, with winners announced in October.
The Education Department is running the competition in partnership with the Office for Women, Catholic Education SA, the Association of Independent Schools of SA and the History Trust of SA.

A recognition ceremony will be held for winning students at Parliament House in November. Thursday 19 December 2019 will mark the 125th anniversary of the Adult Suffrage Bill.
