Member for Shellharbour, Anna Watson, is calling on local high school students to enter the 2017 Premier’s Anzac Ambassadors Program.

This program, funded by ClubsNSW, will give six young people from across NSW the chance to take the trip of a lifetime, visiting historic battlefields in Greece and Israel.

The lucky six people chosen will travel to Lemnos in Greece and to Israel for the Centenary of the Charge of the Fourth Light Horse Brigade at Beersheba.

In order to be eligible, entrants must be at least 16 years of age and not yet 18 years of age by 24th October 2017.

Entrants are required to submit a 1000-word essay which answers the following question: Why is the Centenary of Anzac important for modern Australia and what lessons are learned from the Battle of Beersheba in 1917?

Submissions close at 5pm on Monday 31st July 2017 and can be made via email to anzacambassadors@clubsnsw.com.au. Further information about this program can be found on the ClubsNSW website.
