Young Historian's Workshop

The Premier's Anzac Prize students arrived in Brisbane on Sunday 15 January 2017 for a two-day workshop at the State Library of Queensland on the 16th and 17th January. The students and chaperones were given the opportunity for a behind-the-scenes tour of the library and completed their research on service men and women who served in Gallipoli and on the Western Front with the assistance of a group of mentors from the State Library. Once finalised, their service person research will have a home on the State Library of Queensland website as a Historypin.
