Sleek Geeks Science Eureka Prize - The Australian Museum

No. The Sleek Geeks Science Eureka Prize is free to enter. Are home educated students eligible to enter? Yes. Students that are home-schooled in accordance with the relevant state or territory legislation are eligible to enter. I am in year seven, but still at primary school. As you are in primary school in the state where you are enrolled, you should enter the primary school category. Can an entry be made up of students from more than one school? How do I submit my short film? What if my short film is too long? I'm having trouble filling out the entry form. Please contact the Eureka Prizes team on 02 9320 6230 or via email at

There never used to be a theme, why have you introduced one? Each year we receive many short films, which in the past have explored a wide range of topics. The theme of 'big' has been selected for its wide scope of interpretation. I’ve entered the Eureka Prizes before, but my login details no longer work. Brain Bee Challenge 2021. Australian poetry projects, events and exhibitions by Australian writers. A new universe of Poetry Object has arrived!

Australian poetry projects, events and exhibitions by Australian writers

Red Room Poetry is excited to be partnering in Australia with Copyright Agency to launch a regeneration of Poetry Object in 2020 and beyond. Red Room Poetry Object is Australasia’s largest free poetry-writing competition for young people and their teachers. Poetry Object ignites imaginations by inviting poems inspired by treasured, curious, everyday, extraordinary, interplanetary, or talismanic objects. We're creating a new space for poets to shape the worlds around them. From the memory of galactic stones to sneakers that glow in the dark, the satellites of mobile phones and comets of things past – a first tooth, a red ballet shoe, fake vampire fangs, a stamp collection holding secret light – we're looking for poets and poems that voice the hidden histories of special objects and talismans that we keep close through the orbit of our lives.
