Name our Icebreaker competitionName our Icebreaker competition

The Australian Government is delivering a new world-class Antarctic icebreaker and we want Australian students to help name it!

The new icebreaker will be a modern, sophisticated ship that will shape the future of Australia’s Antarctic endeavours for decades to come.

The Name our Icebreaker competition has been 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 is open to Australian students from year 5 to year 8 (or recognised equivalent). Entries will be accepted from a class or registered learning unit, not from individuals.
