Nominations Extended-Salute to Excellence Awards!

The QTIC Salute to Excellence Awards nominations has been extended by 1 week! Nominations will now close Monday, June 8 at 5pm.

Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, QTIC has modified the Salute to Excellence Awards program to allow for nominations and judging to take place completely online.
The 'skills test day' for secondary students has been modified to include video submissions demonstrating practical skills, responses to written assessment submitted by PDF into the Judgify system, and face to face interviews with judges conducted through scheduled webinars.
The nomination process is quite easy and should only take a moment of your time. If you have any concerns about your nomination or you require assistance please email:

The five award categories include:
  • Secondary student - Tourism

  • Secondary student - Cookery
  • Teacher/Trainer of the Year

The program acknowledges those in the delivery of tourism, food and beverage and cookery qualifications through VETiS, and School-based Apprenticeship(s) or Traineeship(s).
