The awards have a 2-stage assessment process.
All applications are reviewed by a judging panel, consisting of a mix of department employees – principals, directors, executive directors, education directors and past winners – from a variety of locations across the organisation.
The state panel then reviews the shortlisted applicants to select 1 winner and 2 finalists for each category. The state panel is chaired by the Chief Executive, Department for Education and includes award partners from around the state with an interest in education services.
Applicants will be notified if they have been selected as a finalist. Finalists will be sent an information pack, so please ensure your postal address is correct and kept up-to-date.
