2021 SIMPSON PRIZE RESULTS

Due to the recent COVID-19 activities we had to postpone the 3-day Canberra Study Tour and the Award Ceremony for the 2021 program.  This was replaced by an online Simpson Prize Presentation Ceremony on 7 July 2021 attended by student winners and runners-up from both 2020 and 2021, chaperones and other guests.
