With a prize pool of $5 million every year for three years, NAB’s Schools First initiative is a national awards program that provides financial recognition and support to build and enhance effective school-community partnerships.

All Australian primary and secondary schools can apply for Schools First funding for their community partnership from 1 July – 14 August 2009.

To explain the nomination process, Schools First is running a series of 80 workshops across the country. The workshops are free-of-charge and open to school staff, principals, school councils, parents, local government, State and Federal government, local business associations, health and well-being organisations and any other community group interested in partnering with a local school.
