Each year, the College presents up to two Liam and Frankie Davison Awards to senior secondary students in Australia and New Zealand for outstanding literary submissions on a women’s health topic.
Established in 2014, the literary Award continues to grow in popularity. This year, the College received a total of 22 entries. The Award Committee were impressed with both the quality and range of women’s health topics that were addressed. These topics included mental health, fertility, polycystic ovarian syndrome, abortion, women in developing countries and violence against women.
Julia Down of Fintona Girl’s School (Victoria) was identified as the clear 2016 Award winner for her excellent submission titled, Virginity: A way of Oppression and Restriction. Julia was presented with a certificate and $1000 prize by CEO, Alana Killen, at a school assembly attended by Julia’s teachers, peers and family. The College congratulates Julia for her achievement.
