We are very proud to announce our Zonta education award prize winners for 2020.
This award, valued at $500, was provided to six young girls at Brisbane high schools with the intent to provide encouragement to financially disadvantaged young women to complete Year 12; to encourage young women to enter professions in maths, science, technology and engineering; to improve the status of younger women in educational institutions and in society at large; and to introduce young women and the wider community to the aims and goals of Zonta.
Zonta Club of Brisbane has been awarding this prize for more than 20 years and in that time has given it to more than 255 female students.
These awards are integral to the work that Zonta does here in Brisbane and across the world to empower women and girls so they can have equal opportunity to succeed and be safe.
The winners of this year’s awards are:
Aviation High Francella Gabuogi
Bundamba State High School Piper-Marie Rose
Glenala State High School Lisa Pham
Mable Park State High School Jemma Attard
