Maleny Youth Art Awards

The 14th annual Maleny Youth Art Awards were held last weekend at the Maleny High School. Close to 400 entries came from Primary, Junior, Senior and Graduate students living in the Hinterlands from Beerwah to Mapleton.
This year's event was sponsored by the Maleny Apex and coordinated by 'yours truly' with the help of several COMA volunteers. Art collector and patron of the awards, Ken Hinds, handed out the prizes at the opening ceremony on Saturday.
Congratulations to the 37 winners - a fantastic effort.
