WHO CAN ENTER?
The competition is open to all students from Year 3 to Year 12 in all schools across Melbourne and Victoria. Even students from non-participating schools and home schooled students may enter as independent candidates.
CAN THIS HELP PREPARE FOR VCE?
As the oral and written assessments are conducted under exam conditions, many teachers use this competition as a motivational tool and as practice for the end of year VCE exams.
