2023 Tall Poppy Award Nominations – Open

tall poppy award campaign 2023

The annual Young Tall Poppy Science Awards were created to recognise and celebrate the achievements of Australian scientists. Recipients of the Young Tall Poppy Science Awards (referred to as ‘Tall Poppies’) promote interest in science among students in all stages of learning, teachers and peers. Our Tall Poppies also provide understanding and an appreciation of science in the broader community.

In 2022 we welcomed over 60 new Young Tall Poppies from around Australia and now in its 25th year, we hope to welcome even more.

This year, nominations open on 14th February 2023 and will close 5PM AEST 14th April 2023.
