The scholarships were open to anyone entering years 7, 11 or 12, and to students finishing year 12 and continuing with their education.

The 16 scholarships were awarded to Jack Gomboc, Jessica McGarry, Miriam Perkins, Ellen Parker, Emily Judd, Abby Simmonds, Jasmine Fishwick, Leah Walker, Jayde Davidson, Leniana Masibaka, Melanie Parker, Jessica Beasley, Joshua Elphick, Rylee De San Miguel, Kyle Mottram and Ella Drew.

Applications were assessed by a panel of judges based on academic achievement, attitude and potential, personal achievements and community contribution.

City of Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said the scholarships were a great incentive for local youth.

‘City of Kwinana receives a number of applications each year, all displaying a high calibre of local talent,’ she said.

‘Scholarships start at $300 for young people entering Year 7 and goes up to $800 for those young people undertaking further education.

‘This is a great incentive for local youth and will greatly assist with purchasing books and resources for the upcoming year.’

Scholarship submissions open in August every year.
