Name our Icebreaker competition
The Australian Government is delivering a new world-class Antarctic icebreaker and Australian students are helping to name it!
The Name our Icebreaker competition was designed to engage Australian students in Australia’s Antarctic Program and expand their understanding of Antarctica, its environment, climate, history and Australia’s role there.
The competition was open for entries from 3 May to 7 July 2017.
The icebreaker name and winners of the competition will be publicly announced in September 2017, with the prize flight to Wilkins Aerodrome in Antarctica scheduled for November or December 2017, on a date to be advised.
Please see the competition terms and conditions [PDF] for further information.
