The creation of ‘Age Appropriate Resources’.
This subsidy will be available for individuals who contribute a short 2/3 page written piece of stimulus
material to be used in an upcoming Philosothon. Please note that this will relate primarily to

Secondary School Philosothons (Years 8-12) and should be tailored to this audience. Over the course
of the project this funding will total $4,500.00. ($300 per written piece) Successful applicants will be  
an honorarium for stimulus material which deals with big philosophical questions. Please note
t there are some areas that the funding cannot cover. Click here for a list of exemptions. People
can contribute material in any case but if they want it to be eligible for a honorarium they must make
sure th
e contribution does not cover the areas listed.  There is a max of three grants for a single
contributor. Please note that other formats will be considered e.g audio/video but ideally it will be a
written piece submitted.

The panel will consider the following criteria to select the awardees.

1.        Age appropriate
2.        Originality and relevance
3.        Balance of topics i.e we seek to cover a range of philosophical areas in a Philosothon

Metaphysics/Epistemology & Axiology) Please do not try to cover all three but make sure your
stimulus material fits within one area.
