Rachel Colosimo from Kolbe Catholic College, Greenvale Lakes, Lola Derrick-Wright from Academy of Mary Immaculate, Fitzroy, and Sarah Stanko from Santa Maria College, Northcote, will visit Canberra as part of their prize.

The Premier’s Spirit of Anzac Prize provides 22 students with the opportunity to participate in an overseas study tour to sites where Australians have served in times of war and peacekeeping. In addition, 20 regional finalists will visit Canberra and be invited to attend the Premier’s ANZAC Day Luncheon.
