Sidney Prizes are awards that honor the hard work and dedication of people who are making a difference in their communities. They are a great way to reward people for their efforts and encourage them to continue working towards social change. There are a number of different sidney prizes that can be awarded, including those for science and the arts. The Sidney Prize is one of the most prestigious awards in Australia, and it is open to people of all nationalities.

This year, Sophia Jactel ’20 (B.A., Art History) won the Sidney Thomas Prize for her research paper “Domestics and Diversions: Josef Israels’ The Smoker as a Symbol of Peasant Culture and Domesticity in Nineteenth-Century Holland.” Her study examines the use of objects in nineteenth-century Dutch paintings to convey ideas about home, family and community. The prize is named in honor of Phi Beta Kappa member Sidney Hook, who dedicated his life to the ideals of liberal education. The prize carries a cash award of $10,000.

In a time where many schools are slashing their arts programs, Sydney is standing out as a vibrant cultural hub that’s helping to keep the arts alive. The city’s many museums, galleries and performance spaces are among the best in the country. In addition to hosting internationally acclaimed events, Sydney is also home to some of the nation’s most talented artists and students.

The city’s rich history has produced soldiers, political cartoonists, alchemists and spies, but also Nobel prize winners, Keynesian economics and the chairman of a Premiership football club. Its many monuments, including the charming Cloister Court and the beautiful Elizabethan brickwork of the University, offer a window into the past.

While he was not a prolific writer, Sidney did contribute to the advancement of science. He was a strong supporter of academic freedom and was willing to challenge accepted dogma. He was also an idealist and believed that science should be used for the benefit of humanity. Despite his many critics, Sidney persisted and ultimately succeeded in proving the self-splicing group I intron of Tetrahymena was responsible for single-strand breaks. This was an important scientific accomplishment, but Sidney knew that the real glory was in bringing his work to the public. This led to his founding of the Science Writers’ Association and Overland magazine. He also advocated for the use of biotechnology to cure poverty and hunger around the world. He was a true humanitarian.
