Patji - Dawes Award 2018 Nominations now open

Patji-Dawes Award 2019

Ciao, Konnichiwa, Salut, Yaama. Who taught you that language? Nominate them for the Patji-Dawes award!

The purpose of the award is to honour outstanding achievements in teaching languages other than English by an accomplished practitioner in Australia. Achieving proficiency in another language is one of the great learning experiences and our language teachers deserve our recognition. The teaching may have taken place in any setting - school, university, private language school, government department or Indigenous community. Help us show Australia that monolingualism is curable!

For more detailed information on the award and nomination process please visit the Australian Centre of Excellent for the Dynamics of Language website.

Please note: The deadline for nominations is 18 March 2019.
