The most brilliant minds can be the most humble, and that includes South Australian STEM-practitioners, educators and communicators. But we must make sure they receive recognition by nominating them for well-deserved awards.

Inspiring South Australia has compiled a comprehensive list of STEM research, teaching, communication, journalism and arts awards. The aim of the awards list is to enhance the public recognition of South Australian STEM-practitioners by increasing the awareness of awards available and encouraging nomination.

South Australians are eligible to apply for all of the awards on the list. The list contains mostly state- and national-based awards, with some international awards. The awards are arranged by category:

  • Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry
  • Animal Science
  • Arts
  • Education
  • Engineering
  • General
  • Geographical and Geological Sciences
  • Journalism
  • Mathematical and Computing Sciences
  • Medical and Cognitive Sciences
  • Physical Sciences
  • Plant and Ecological Sciences
  • Science Communication
  • Technological Sciences


If you’ve ever thought about nominating, don’t be shy! And if you know of someone deserving, consider nominating them.
