The 2018 ClubsNSW Anzac Ambassadors Program has now opened and local high school students are encouraged to enter the essay competition.

Six young people from across New South Wales will be given the chance to take the trip of a lifetime to historic battlefields overseas.

The initiative, funded by ClubsNSW, will see six students travel to Athens and Lemnos in Greece, Villers-Bretonneux in France, Passchendaele in Belgium, and London as part of a 10-day tour in October 2018.

High School students 16 and 17 years of age are invited to enter the 2018 Premier's Anzac Ambassadors Program.

Minister for Veterans Affairs David Elliott said it is important for young people and students to understand and commemorate the great sacrifices the Anzacs made over 100 years ago in foreign wars and on foreign battlefields.

ClubsNSW chief executive Anthony Ball said the Anzac Ambassadors Program aimed to enrich the lives of participating students by giving them a better understanding of the hardships faced by Australians during World War I.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for school students to learn about the contributions and sacrifices made by Anzac soldiers, and to pass this knowledge onto their peers after they return home,” Mr Ball said.

Former Anzac Ambassador Eloise Cooper said the she felt privileged to undertake such a life-changing experience shared with people who have become friends for life.

“The program provided me with an opportunity to realise the vastness of the challenges the Anzacs undertook, and has made me even prouder to be Australian.”

To enter, simply submit a 1000-word essay which answers the following question: Why is the Centenary of Anzac important for Modern Australia?

Entry must be received by 5pm Monday July 31 2018. 

All submissions must be accompanied by a resume with three referees.
