NAB Schools First Student Award Opens 9th May

NAB Schools First Student Award Opens 9th May

Over the last two years, NAB Schools First has rewarded 195 Australian schools with over $10 million in funding in recognition of the work they are doing in partnership with their local community to improve the educational outcomes of students.

Now NAB is asking students for their ideas for partnerships between their school and local community. There is no idea too big or small. It just needs to be an original idea for a partnership in their school community.

The five best ideas from across Australia will receive a prize pack for the student and their schools including $2,000 to help turn their idea into a reality, support from the NAB Schools First team and travel to Melbourne for a workshop with other winners later in the year. Successful applicants will also be linked up with leaders in Australian business, will be applauded within their own school, and have credentials that will look great on a CV.

Everything you need to know about the NAB Schools First Student Award can be found in the Application Pack, including the Application Form, the Terms and Conditions and the Guide to developing school-community partnerships.

Student Award applications open online at 9.00am (AEST) on Monday, 9 May 2011 and close 5.00pm (AEST) on Friday, 27 May 2011.
