2007

Consider what values and characteristics demonstrated by the ANZACs at Gallipoli and later reinforced at the Western Front, continue to influence Australia today.
2008
To what extent was Simpson a hero? How have his heroic qualities been demonstrated by other Australians since 1915?

In your response, you should aim to give approximately equal attention to each question.


2014
Students were encouraged to identify and explore the motivation for young men and women to volunteer for service in 1914. Students then scrutinized a variety of sources to uncover historical evidence which supported the proposition of individuals who rallied to the defense of the British Empire or in some cases more personal and economic reasons. Others as we know, simply and naively thought this would be an adventure. These students are to be praised for their ability to reach insightful conclusions illustrated by carefully chosen evidence and sophisticated use of the Simpson Prize 2015 AWM Sources.”
