WA Tall Poppies

The 2020 WA Young Tall Poppy Winners were announced on 17th September at the WA Museum.

The Young Tall Poppy Science Awards, an initiative of the Australian Institute of Policy and Science, aims to recognise excellence in research as well as enthusiasm for communicating science beyond the walls of the laboratory. The Awards are widely considered to be an early indicator of Australia’s future scientific leaders, identifying excellent early career scientists.

Tall Poppies were first awarded in Western Australia in 2010, with Tall Poppy Science Awards ceremonies being held each year. More than 50 Young Tall Poppies have been named in WA during that time.
