2011 Green Lane Diary Awards Ceremony

On Thursday 10 November 2011, we hosted the Green Lane Diary Awards Ceremony at The State LibraryGLD character with tropheyof Queensland.


This year's participants were incredible and the ceremony was extra special.  We were excited to have Kell and Seamus from Channel 10's Toasted TV host the event and honoured that Minister Peter Garrett, Minister for School Education, Early Childhood and Youth, came to present the awards, and Ernie the dog showed us his special tricks!


Congratulations to all the schools, students and teachers who were involved in the 2011 Green Lane Diary program.  We encourage you to continue with your programs and keep in contact with us about your ideas and actions.
