Happy new year and welcome back! The Bebras Australia team is excited to announce that coordinator and student registration for The Bebras Challenge in 2023 is now live. In this email you can find the latest Bebras Australia challenge dates, as well as some other program updates. We wish you all the best for the upcoming 2023 school year.
Bebras 2023 Round One Question Review
We are delighted to announce the dates for Rounds 1 and 2 of the Bebras Challenge:
Round 1 – Monday 24th April – Sunday 14th May
Round 2 – Monday 21st August – Sunday 10th September
After receiving positive feedback for extending the 2022 rounds by a week, both rounds this year will again take place across three weeks each.
Please note: Round 1 will now take place at the beginning of term 2. This is due to NAPLAN occurring during the traditional March window.
Checking Coordinators Attached to your School
We kindly ask that upon logging for this year to check the coordinators attached to your school. If there are accounts that are no longer relevant, main coordinators should remove them.
If the main coordinator is no longer active in your school, please contact us at email@example.com and we will change over these privileges to a more relevant coordinator account. This will allow for easy management going forward.
2022 Data Deletion and Uploading Students for 2023
As mentioned in our previous update, all student and challenge data for 2022 has successfully been deleted. This means you are now able to upload your students in preparation for Bebras in 2023.
A reminder that new "Participation and Privacy Consent forms" need to be collected for 2023, which can be found in your coordinator portal or on our website.
Updates to Certificates in 2023
In 2023, the structure of certificates for the Bebras Challenge has been brought in line with the practices of the international community. To celebrate engagement irrespective of prior ability, all students will receive identical certificates acknowledging their participation.
Additional editable Best in School certificates are awarded to the students who achieve the highest score for each age group in your individual school.
Students who receive full marks in the Bebras Challenge will continue to be awarded a certificate sent to their school that acknowledges their place on the Bebras Honour Roll.
Should you alternatively wish to continue using the achievement levels from past Bebras Challenges, these certificates can be generated at the discretion of each coordinator as follows:
