Students to honour ANZAC spirit

Registrations are now open for the ANZ RSA Cyril Bassett VC Speech Competition, with year 12 and 13 students competing for the chance to travel to Gallipoli for ANZAC Day 2013.

The annual competition is a partnership between the RSA and ANZ to promote a deeper understanding and appreciation of the sacrifices made by those who have served New Zealand in armed conflicts overseas.

Launched in 2010 under The National Bank brand, the competition is a tribute to Cyril Bassett, VC (1892-1983) – the only New Zealander at Gallipoli to be awarded the Victoria Cross, and one who worked his entire career at The National Bank. ANZ bought The National Bank in 2003 and merged the brands last year.

Full competition details are at http://www.rsa.org.nz/national-speech-competition
