Awards 2024

Be an Aussie Upstander!

Nominations are now open for the Queensland Junior Upstander Awards! Primary school students can nominate themselves or someone else to be recognised as an Aussie upstander.  

What is an Upstander? 
Someone who recognises when something is wrong and does something to make it right.

Bullying can have lasting negative impacts, but it can be reduced and prevented. Life Ed Qld is calling on the Qld community to exemplify upstander behaviour.  

We are inviting applications from primary school students who can nominate themselves or another person, explaining how that person is an upstander and epitomises kindness.
