The Kooyong Student Prize was established in 2012 and is an annual award recognising local school students for excellence, leadership, and their contribution to the school community.
Two students are nominated and awarded from each school. For secondary schools and schools offering both primary and secondary education, a total of two student recipients from years 10 – 12 should be selected. For primary schools, recipients are selected from years 5 and 6. For co-educational schools, a male and a female recipient are nominated.
