The awards recognise the spirituality, personal qualities, and contributions made by students in their senior years to their school and community. Students in Years 11, 12 and 13 in Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Adelaide are eligible to be nominated by their principals for this award.

These annual awards complement other school awards presented to students for community service and academic, artistic, vocational, and sporting endeavours.

Through these awards, the Archdiocese wishes to acknowledge young people who are nearing completion of their school life. We celebrate the sense of hope they have for the future and the persistence they have shown in being successful within the many different learning pathways offered at Catholic schools. We particularly commend the personal qualities and spiritual gifts that these young people bring to the life and service of their school and local community.

The nominated students will demonstrate the following criteria:
