Welcome to the Oliphant Coordinator Login Area!

Coordinator registrations are now open for 2024. 

Please note that even though you've previously registered as an Oliphant coordinator, you will still need to register for the 2024 competition before you can register projects.

Only ONE WEEK to go to for coordinator and project registrations for 2024! 


Project and coordinator registrations have been extended to Monday 20th May.

Note, if you have any trouble registering your projects over the weekend of 18th and 19th May, you'll need to email Rebecca (office@sasta.asn.au) so she can assist you on Monday 20th May.

Following this, we've also decided to extend the first amendments period to include the following weekend (now closing Sunday 26th May). The second amendments period dates remain unchanged.



Due to an unforeseen issue, the delivery date for onsite projects (Crystals, Models & Inventions, Games, Photography and Posters), and, consequently, the onsite judging date has changed.

Projects will now need to be delivered on Wednesday 31st July and judging will take place on Thursday 1st August. Please ensure you mark these dates in your diary. Reminders about this will be sent regularly by email. 

NOTE: The venue has not changed, and the date for project collection remains the same (Monday 5th August).

Submission dates for projects in all other categories are not affected and remain as advertised.


Information for 2024 

The 2024 Oliphant Science Awards topics and key dates are now available along with the 2024 Information Booklet. We hope this helps you with Oliphant planning for next year.

We are also excited to announce that there are some new funding opportunities for the 2024 Oliphant competition year. The 2024 Regional Student Travel Fund is still available

Applications for all three funding opportunities for 2024 are now open, and you can find out more about each opportunity and what is involved by clicking on the links above.
