Stephanie Di Fava, formerly of Loreto College and who is only 14 years of ago, was the winner of this year’s national speaking competition – the Neville Bonner Memorial Prize.

ACM runs this competition as part of its education programme, which aims to engage students in issues related to our system of govenment – in particular the roll of the Australian Crown.

The article below was published in the Eastern Courier following Stephanie re-delivering her winning address at a lunch in Sydney attended by the Prime Minister of Australia, Tony Abbott, and 300 ACM supporters.

ACM congratulates Stephanie on her achievement and looks forward to her continued success.
