Invitations to participate in the Australasian Philosothon are sent to the winning schools from each regional Philosothon conducted in the preceding
year in proportion to the number of schools participating in each Philosothon. If there are 8-12 schools participating in a regional Philosothon, then
the AAP will invite the top two schools from that Philosothon. If there are 25 schools or more then the top three schools will be invited to attend. If a
school does not accept the offer then the next placed school will be offered a place. Each school sends two 14 year olds, two 15 year olds, two 16
year olds and two students to compete in the open division. (In other words Year 12s can be involved) In 2020 we will require schools to submit
students birthday must fall within 2020.
