The awards recognise the role architects are playing in making Victoria a world leader in school design.
Finalists are selected for the innovation, creativity and practicality they have brought to designing new, or modernising existing, Victorian public schools.
These awards provide an incentive for driving design excellence, while showcasing best practice designs to inspire other schools planning similar projects.
