Menzies Centenary Prize
The Menzies Centenary Prize was initiated by the Foundation in 1994 in association with the Dimboola Memorial Secondary College to mark the centenary of Sir Robert Menzies’ birth in Jeparit.
The $10,000 prize is jointly funded by the Foundation and the Menzies Memorial Scholars Association. It is awarded to a Year 12 student from Dimboola Memorial Secondary College as a contribution to the first and second years of tertiary study. Although the primary criterion is academic achievement, the successful candidate will also have made an outstanding contribution to the life of the College over at least two years.
The winner of the 2012 Menzies Centenary Prize is Ms Shannon Pietsch who is undertaking a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science degree at Deakin University.
