Awards and recognition

A winning formula

Hands On Learning artisan-teachers Lloyd Smith and David Scarlett won the City of Greater Geelong 2011 IMPETUS Youth Award for the Environment for their work at Northern Bay College, along with a handy $500 for their school.

The awards not only celebrate the outstanding contributions of young people, but also recognize inspirational efforts of the likes of Lloyd and Dave who have worked with their students to build and install a section of boardwalk for the You Yangs Mountain Bike Course, used by 70,000 people every year.
