SSA Canberra Branch - Dennis Trewin prize
The Dennis Trewin Prize, named after the former Australian Statistician Dennis Trewin AO (picture below), is awarded annually by the Canberra Branch for outstanding research in statistics or data science by a current or recently graduated postgraduate student from a ACT or regional NSW (excluding Sydney-Newcastle-Wollongong) university.
In the 2021 version of the prize, interested applicants (possibly after an initial shortlisting phase) were invited to submit a recorded 15-20 minute presentation on their research project. An external selection panel including Dennis himself then reviewed the presentations. The winner/s were then invited to present an extended version of their research talk as part of the (usually) October branch meeting, to the wider Canberra Branch. A monetary prize was also awarded to the winner, while all shortlisted candidates received a one year complimentary student/transition membership to the SSA.
