About the award

This year marked the 125th anniversary of the Adult Suffrage Bill that allowed women in South Australia – for the first time anywhere in Australia – to vote in elections and to stand as members of Parliament.

This competition gave students in years 6, 7, 8 and 9 from all education sectors the opportunity to participate in historical research to develop understanding and empathy of the tireless efforts of South Australians that resulted in the passing of this landmark legislation.

The competition was open to South Australian students enrolled in government, Catholic and Independent schools in years 6, 7, 8 and 9 only.
