Rotary Eureka! (Science Award)
 
Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka! Awards for students aged 16 to 25
 
Established in 2012 in memory of Scientist Sir Paul Callaghan the purpose of the Awards is to recognize excellence in science communication by secondary school and undergraduate tertiary students through presentations on an area of science that is of benefit to New Zealand.
 
This is a national competition with regional competitions leading up to the final presentations in Wellington.  The regional competitions are 6-minute presentations before a panel of judges and the finals are 12 minutes. The first prize is $10,000 and there are numerous highly commended monetary awards as well as study scholarships to be won.
