Young Historians Workshop

On Thursday 14 January 2016, the eight recipients of the 2016 Premier's Anzac Prize participated in the two-day Young Historians Workshop held at the State Library of Queensland in Brisbane.

The students were welcomed by various members of the State Library who provided an insight into their capabilities. They described how they would assist the students in preparing for the workshop projects and activities. The students participated in several exciting hands-on sessions over two days such as an introduction to the State Library collections/history databases, creating a digital legacy (history pin), Fox Family white gloves room and giving your research an edge - introduction to innovative ways to complete your presentation.

As part of the Premier's Anzac Prize tour, the students and chaperones have adopted and researched three service people, one for each of the three criteria:

This was the most predominant part of the workshop. There were many hours dedicated to working with library staff mentors to collect information and images of their service people. These formed the basis of eulogies that were presented at commemoration services held at the graves of their chosen service persons.

At the conclusion of the workshop, the students reflected on their experiences and described the workshop as a worthwhile learning activity. They enjoyed learning to access websites normally unknown to the novice researcher.
