The Rail Track Association Australia (RTAA) Management Committee has created an annual Young Rail Specialist Achievement Award for excellence and ‘applied’ innovation to be granted to an eligible young rail employee.  Eligible employees may be a specialist in railway infrastructure, and not necessarily an engineer, under the age of 35 years.

The Award is aimed at recognising and encouraging the contribution of young people in rail, while also promoting the objectives of the RTAA.

This Award is open to individuals who are:

  • employees of current Corporate RTAA members or Personal members (JOIN HERE), and
  • under the age of 35 as at 1 January 2019, and
  • demonstrate their personal key involvement in the rail industry, either locally or internationally in one or more of the specific areas of railway practice listed above, and
  • Australian or New Zealand citizens or residents.

The judging panel will consist of at least four members of the RTAA Frank Franklyn Award Sub-Committee, as led by the RTAA’s Award Champion.  The applicant may be required to make a brief presentation to the panel on their application to assist in determining the winner.

Nominations for 2019 Awards have now closed, the 2020 Award nominations will open in January 2020.
