Mayor Jamieson - Congrats to our technology awards winners
  • Monday 09 July 2018

We've come to the end of the third annual Mayor's Telstra Technology Awards and my congratulations go to all of our Sunshine Coast student teams who put their minds to work to come up with some impressive entries.

The judging panel was blown away by the talent, ingenuity and strategies employed by all of our students to take a problem and develop a technological solution.

The awards also gave our participants some great insights into the future career options and pathways offered in the technology sector.

At our awards night, we announced that teams from Chancellor State College filled first and second positions, while third place went to Mountain Creek High School.

We’re very fortunate to have so many talented young people in our healthy, smart and creative region and I’m sure many of our entrants will go on to be future leaders of the Sunshine Coast.

I would like to thank everyone who has been involved with these awards this year, especially our partner Telstra along with the mentors, school coordinators, families, SCRIPT, Schoolzine and Beach City who gave their support
