Olympic Change-Maker Award
The Australian Olympic Change-Maker program recognises students who demonstrate the Olympic spirit—friendship, sportsmanship and striving for excellence—both on and off the playing field, through leadership and by driving positive change in their school or local community.
Teachers can nominate up to two students from year 10 -12 each year for the award.
Nominated students receive an invitation to attend the Change-Maker Forum and be part of the Change-Maker Alumni, connecting like-minded students around the country. A certificate of recognition and consideration to attend the National Change-maker Summit is also included.
