TERM 2 – The Future: Tourism and Hospitality School Competition

18/05/2021

ServiceIQ and Go with Tourism are running nationwide competitions throughout the school year for Tourism and Hospitality students. 


The competitions have been designed to support and align with the current Tourism and Hospitality curriculum, are free to enter, and submissions may align wholly or as part of related Unit Standard assessment requirements.

Tourism and Hospitality competitions will be run in each of Terms 1, 2 and 3 (six in all), with winners for each Term announced shortly after each closing date. Each competition entry will be judged using a 0–10 points system which will be outlined in each competition brief.

The Hospitality competition is limited to students of Hospitality subjects; whereas the Tourism competition is open to Year 12 or 13 students studying Tourism or who have an interest in pursuing this industry as a career.
