Nearly 200 of Western Australia’s Brightest Year 12 Public School Students will be awarded $1,000 cash prizes for their Academic Achievements.

Education Minister Liz Constable today congratulated 182 Public School Students, who were each named dux of their school for Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) examination or Vocational Education and Training (VET) studies.

“The State Government awards Best and Brightest prizes annually to the most outstanding Academic and Vocational Students in WA public schools, based on their school results.” Dr. Constable said.

“These students are to be commended for their dedication and effort during the demanding final year of secondary school.”

“Their teachers, principals and, of course, their families also deserve to be acknowledged for the direction and support they provided to the students.”

“I am confident the students are set for bright futures in their chosen fields.” Dr. Constable said.

The Best and Brightest prizes have been awarded each year since 2005 to acknowledge and reward excellence in the Public Education System.

In 2009, 175 students were awarded with Best and Brightest Prizes.

To be eligible for the Prizes, students must meet WACE requirements for Secondary Graduation and achieve a majority of A-grades in Year 12 courses.

The 2010 Prize Winners will receive their $1,000 Cheques in January.
