Subsidies are available in three funding tiers (GST exclusive):
– State or State school events: Up to $200
– National or national school event: Up to $400
– International events: Up to $600

This program will allow up to a maximum of $1,200 in financial assistance over the three event tiers, once every two calendar years.
