Six young people from across New South Wales are being given the chance to take the trip of a lifetime to historic battlefields overseas.

The initiative, funded by ClubsNSW, will see six students travel to Athens and Lemnos in Greece, Villers-Bretonneux in France, Passchendaele in Belgium, and London as part of a 10-day tour in October.

The winners were announced at NSW Parliament House on Thursday 27 September. They are Seleukos Sofianidis, Oscar Moysey, Benjamin Capovilla, Ellen Lavis, Yasmin Jimmieson and Mackenzie McEvoy-King.

A record number of entries were received or this year's program. Students were required to submit a 1000-word essay which answered the following question: Why is the Centenary of Anzac important for Modern Australia?
