On Thursday 26 October the Business Liaison Association and Design and Technology Teachers' Association of Qld hosted again the Regional Secondary Schools Design and Technology Awards at the Events Cinemas, Cairns Central. Students from secondary schools throughout Far North Qld have entered this exciting competition, which gives them the opportunity to demonstrate not only their technical knowledge, but also their very creative skills.
Student entries are judged solely by a panel of industry experts, who look at all aspects of their entries including - complexity of project, choice of materials, quality of work, design and originality.A record number of entries have been received this year. The judges were most impressed with the standard of work.
Almost 100 students were recognised at the Presentation of Awards. It has been pleasing to see the steady increase of female students entering the competition in a traditionally male dominated area.
