  1. What is the difference between submitting online and the Model set up at Sydney Uni ? Sorry Im just unsure if you have to do both or if online is all that is required ? My students have worked on the Working Technology section – so do we just submit all online. Your info and website is great just not sure what is required – Thanks in advance Leonie

  2. Hi Leonie,

    For Models and Innovations you must set up your project at Sydney Uni with your accompanying folio and poster or page explaining how the model works for the judges. For the online component we also need the folio uploaded so we have a record of the project entered. We may shortlist the project for other sponsored awards which makes it necessary to have something submitted online.

  3. Hi. First thanks for an amazing initiative and work.
    I have a question regarding Models and innovation submit dates. I understand that the deadline to register is the 18th. My question is if the report needs to be uploaded at that time -or do the students who will attend the 25th/26th event have until the 25th to work on their report?

  4. Thanks Tobias,

    Strangely enough, we have just put up a post that answers your very question. No project material needs to be uploaded at all and you have until 4pm Friday 25th August to have the report finished.

  5. Apologies for this inquiry, as I’m sure that you are extremely busy at this moment in time. However, we are preparing our final school newspaper of the term and were wandering if the results will be available before Thursday at 3:00pm, as this is our deadline for publishing. Thanks in advance.

  6. Yes Ewan, finalists will be informed in the next 24 hours. Have a look at the announcement that is now going on our home page.

  7. Hi, a few questions:
    – have all the specialist prize winners been notified?
    – will there be any tickets for the presentation ceremony be available for teachers of prize winners?
    Thanks in advance

  8. We just have some Rural Young Scientist Awards to finalise. All other Special Awards winners have been notified in the last three days. Both teacher mentors of winning students and their principals will be invited during the next week.

  9. Hi there, I would like information on the 2018 Young Scientist Award – where can I obtain information on entry requirements, key dates etc. We missed out this year as we were not aware of the competition or key dates so I would like to ensure that my child is able to enter next year.
    Kind regards, Sophie

  10. Hi Sophie,

    Hi Sophie, the 2018 Young Scientist Awards will run in a similar fashion for what is on our website for 2017. The due date is the last Friday in August at midnight. We will be updating our website in November/December.
