GAWA Fieldwork Competition
2018 - TBA
In recognition and support of the introduction of the Western Australian Curriculum: Geography, GAWA offers its Geographic Fieldwork Competition. The purpose of the competition is to provide teachers with the opportunity to create a framework for fieldwork for Years 5 to 12 in line with the 'Western Australian Geography Curriculum', where fieldwork is a compulsory component of the syllabus.
The award will be adjudicated on excellence and therefore each school will be required to make a determination as to whether their best entry at each year is worthy of submission, as only one entry per year level per school will be permitted.
Fieldwork is a motivating and practical way of engaging in the skills and knowledge of Geography. GAWA strongly recommends students participating in inquiry-based fieldwork.
