The Secondary Schools Citizenship Award – 2023

Across Queensland, numerous different schools each year are asked to select and nominate a Year 12 student who they believe should receive the Secondary Schools Citizenship Award based upon the role that they have in their community and school. Each nomination then goes through a judging process in which 12 nominations are selected to receive this award. This year one, out of around 96 or 97 nominations across Queensland was lucky enough to be one of the 12 students chosen to receive it after I was nominated by Mrs Cullen and Mr Kasselman (big thanks to both of them).

 The presentation took place on the 15th of this month at Parliament House. Each of the awards were presented by the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC CVO KC (the prior (26th) Governor of Queensland), followed by a 60-90 second speech by each award recipient on our beliefs and hopes regarding youth and citizenship.

 I really enjoyed the presentation and getting to meet the other recipients as it meant that I had a chance to see some of the other amazing things that people my age have done and am really grateful for my nomination.
