Many individuals work tirelessly to improve humanity. We should acknowledge their efforts and encourage them to keep doing what they’re doing, one way being through awarding of Sydney Prizes which may be given for various purposes (scientists, writers or activists can receive one), recognizing their work while motivating others to join them and get involved – business awards may even be awarded nationwide!
Nazanin Boniadi has been awarded this year’s Sydney Peace Prize in recognition of her tireless work in fighting for women and children’s rights in Iran. The prize money will help support her ongoing efforts in turning outrage into action, according to Clover Moore – Lord Mayor of Sydney – who hopes that more people stand up for what they believe in and fight for human rights in their respective nations.
This monthly journalism award was established to recognize journalists who work towards social justice and public policy for the common good. It is named in honor of Sidney Hook, an Phi Beta Kappa member who believed in liberal education ideals as well as being a scientist who worked to bring his findings more accessible to non-scientists. Sidney Hook championed academic freedom often speaking out against those attempting to limit scientific research.
The Neilma Sydney Short Story Prize, run by Overland magazine and the Neilma Sydney Foundation, provides young writers an incredible opportunity to demonstrate their writing talents. The winning entry will receive both cash prizes as well as having their story published in Overland magazine – plus, there are many other contests and scholarships open to students, such as Kate Carte Prize for History!
An engineering scholarship from Sydney Prize can be an incredible way for a student to advance their studies in engineering. Students who receive such a scholarship may use it to fund an internship at a company where they’ll learn from experienced engineers – creating invaluable experience that will build their resume for later use.
Before applying for any Sidney Prizes, it’s essential that you understand their requirements. Apply early as competition can be stiff; doing so will increase your chance of success and ensure no problems arise later on. In addition, be sure to read all of the rules and regulations carefully so as not to run into any unexpected issues later. Good luck!
