'Connecting today's generation with the first generation'
The Spirit of Hellenism competition is an annual award open to Victorians aged 15 to 25 (in the year the competition is judged). Entrants are required to research and tell a story of contribution made by Hellenic migrants to Australian society. Entrants must come into contact with at least one primary source and work to understand their contribution (via interviews of the person, family and friends, and documents found at local historical societies such as local Greek clubs). Students can turn their research into entries by presenting it in any format (e.g. essay, poem, audio presentation, video presentation, musical composition, digital presentation, artwork).
