The RTAA are pleased to announce that the submissions for the 2018 Frank Franklyn Award are now open!
The Award recognises the contribution that young people make to the future of the rail industry and encourages them to learn from international sources that will benefit both the individual and the Australian Rail Industry in the future. The Award supports one of the RTAA’s key focus areas “to broaden the appeal of rail to women, young people and Indigenous communities”.
The prize includes conference / exhibition entry fees, travel, accommodation and expenses totalling an amount up to $10,000. (This amount includes GST and is further defined in the Award Entrant Rules and Procedures.) The conference / exhibition must be consistent with the objectives of the RTAA.
The winner will be invited to join the RTAA Management Committee for a period of 12 months. The aim of this role is to foster involvement by young people in rail and engagement with industry groups such as the RTAA.
