The Try-A-Trade schools program run by ABBTF around the country was the trigger for Tre Lyell-Bevan entering and ultimately winning the 2013 “Shout Your Mates” national competition.
The ‘Become a Bricklayer’ comp, pitched to students, was a game of chance – so Tre’s was the first entry drawn, nationally winning him a mighty $1000 worth of Concert and Sports event gift vouchers of his choosing for 2014. The comp helps ABBTF promote the ‘Become a Bricklayer’ website to students.
I was delighted to present Tre with his winning tickets this week. When I asked what he thought about the ABBTF Try-A-Trade that he attended, Tre said that after attending the session he will consider a bricklaying apprenticeship as one of his options when he leaves school.

Fifteen year old Tre attends Queensland’s Wynnum State High School near Brisbane and enjoys football, so he says he’ll likely use some of the tickets to see his favourite teams play. Tre’s father Lindsay said the family is delighted to have won this prize as they have never won a competition before and he is looking forward to joining Tre at an upcoming event. (Hang on there, Dad, this is about ‘Shout your mates’…)
