About The Young Tall Poppy Science Awards

The Young Tall Poppy Science Awards aim to recognise the achievements of Australia’s outstanding young scientific researchers and communicators. Over 500 Young Tall Poppies have been awarded nationally, with awards programs currently in place in every Australian state and territory. The winners (Tall Poppies) participate in education and community outreach programs in which they become role models to inspire school students and the broader community about the possibilities of science. This involves a range of other science promotion activities for school students, teachers and the broader community, including visits to schools, educational seminars, workshops, public talks and other activities. This event is organised by the Australian Institute of Policy and Science in partnership with the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences.
