Each year RANZCOG invites senior secondary students resident in Australia or New Zealand to apply for the Liam and Frankie Davison Award for outstanding achievement in literary writing on Women’s Health. Entrants can write about any issue in women’s health that interests them. Previous submissions have included fictional and non-fictional pieces addressing a broad range of issues including for example; body image and anorexia, ethics, mental health, child marriage, pregnancy in third world countries, assisted reproductive technology and violence against women.
The $1000* award for the best entry provides an exciting opportunity for students, whether they are interested in medicine, science, mental health, sociology, politics or law.
Applications are now open to students in their final three years of secondary school (Years 10, 11 or 12 in Australia and Years 11, 12 or 13 in New Zealand). Entries close 30 April 2021.
