TJ Ryan Memorial Medal

TJ Ryan Memorial Medal winners announced

Ten of Queensland's leading 2004 Year 12 graduates have been awarded 2005 TJ Ryan Memorial Medals and a $10,000 scholarship to complete their tertiary studies.

The scholarships are awarded annually to Year 12 graduates who achieve academic excellence and demonstrate leadership in their schools and communities.

Ten medals are awarded across all school sectors based on the student population. All secondary schools are invited to nominate one Year 12 graduate each year.

Education Minister Anna Bligh presented the TJ Ryan Memorial Medals and scholarship awards at a ceremony at Parliament House in Brisbane on Wednesday, 16 March 2005.

Four highly commended recipients received certificates and $1,000 prizes. Nine graduates received Certificates of Merit.
