A very happy Year 10 student, Katie Rae of Toowoomba recently received a whopping  $1000 Gift Voucher for JB Hi-Fi as the national winner of the ‘Become a Bricklayer – Find Your Freedom’ competition conducted during the trades Careers Expo season across the nation this calendar year.  She was thrilled to win the prize money and she chose an iPad, some accessories for it, a new phone and some CD’s with the JB Hi-Fi voucher.

Runners up in each State won similar cards, to the value of $100 each.  Katie, a student at Concordia Lutheran College in Toowoomba Queensland, entered the competition during the 2012 Toowoomba Careers Expo. Katie is looking at pursuing a career in mechanical engineering or biomedical engineering when she finishes school.  Her new iPad will contribute to a good start to the new school year as well as providing a heap of fun and freedom.

Katie likes to play her oboe, play tennis and is a Girl Guide as well as a volunteer at local charity events.  So good on you Katie – and best of luck with your studies!
