Did you know you can kickstart a student’s PACE Prize application by endorsing them for the awards? Simply follow the below steps:

  1. Think of your outstanding PACE students from 2024. Who made a great impact? Who worked well as a team? Who received fantastic feedback from their industry partner?
  2. Fill out the Unit Convenor Endorsement Form (approx. 5 minutes), which upon completion, will be emailed directly to the students.
  3. Students can then use your endorsement to start their application for a 2024 PACE Prize!

Unit Convenor endorsement is required for a student’s application, but lodging the Endorsement before you are requested can encourage students to apply and be rewarded for their impact!

About the Prizes

The Professor Judyth Sachs PACE Prizes recognise students who have completed a PACE work-integrated learning activity in 2024, staff and industry partners that made an outstanding contribution to the PACE experience.

The opportunity to develop my character as a collaborative, strategic and responsible team leader was the most valuable gift of completing the ENVS3463 PACE project with our partner organisation, the Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (SSROC).
