Reminder: Brother John Taylor Memorial Prize

Nominations for the 2015 Brother John Taylor Memorial Prize are currently being accepted and schools are encouraged to put forward students. The prize recognises students who overcome significant hardship to attain academic excellence in their HSC. Nominations can be made well before final HSC results are released.

The prize was established in 1993 in memory of Brother John Taylor, a distinguished member of the then Board of Studies, who made a significant contribution to education in NSW. It is open to all students and will be awarded early in 2016. The recipient receives a grant, trophy and certificate.

Nominations should be submitted as a PDF and can be emailed or saved to a CD and mailed to BOSTES. Please do not send hard copy nominations or original documents.

Visit the BOSTES website for more information, including guidelines and the nomination form.
