JUDGES INFORMATION

Friday 9 August 2024 | THE STAR EVENT CENTRE

Thank you for your commitment to judge the Australian Education Awards 2024.

We value your contribution and assistance to ensure the integrity and rigour of these important awards.

The Australian Education Awards team has now reviewed the submissions and identified the excellence awardees in each category.

All excellence awardees have completed a submission that respond to the category criteria. They may have also included supporting documentation. Your role as a judge is to score each Excellence Awardee. The nominee with the highest score in each category will be the overall Winner.

Excellence Awardees were announced on Monday, 13 May 2024, and the overall winners will be announced at the Australian Education Awards ceremony on Friday, 9 August at The Star Event Centre Sydney.

Please note that the information contained within these submissions is strictly confidential.
