Silver, Team Silver, Silver Challenge and Team Silver Challenge CREST

All Silver awards for challenging projects, generally for Y11-13 students and can take 3-4 Terms to complete.

Silver CREST is on hold

Due to the uncertainties of the evolving COVID-19 situation, the need to protect our communities and the discomfort and anxiety around gatherings and travel, we are currently not accepting new Silver CREST applications, including Silver, Team Silver, Silver Challenge and Team Silver Challenge. We will reassess in June 2022. Should you have any questions, please email CREST@royalsociety.org.nz.


Silver CRESTers are required to submit a project proposal and are required to work with a consultant/mentor who has expertise on the topic the project is related to.

Silver CRESTers also need an assessor. This person should be someone with expertise on the topic the project is related to. An assessor is someone other than the consultant or supervising teacher. The assessor needs to discuss the project with students to allow them to demonstrate that they have satisfied the Silver assessment criteria.
