Young Tall Poppy Science Award Ceremonies

We aim to reach as broad an audience as possible in announcing our awards, to ensure recipients gain peer recognition as well as public exposure, impact and stakeholder inclusion – that means government, academia, industry, media, diverse publics and individuals. This is in line with Tall Poppy Campaign objectives and Inspiring Australia principles.
