Luke Hobbs: Talent Competition Finalist

John Forrest, The Nationals Federal Member for Mallee, today congratulated Luke Hobbs of Horsham for being selected as a finalist in the National Youth Week Talent Competitions.

“Luke’s entry, Underwater Destruction has been selected as one of five junior finalists in the DesignIT category of the Talent Competitions,” Mr Forrest said.

“The competitions were entered by hundreds of young Australians, so for Luke to be included is a fantastic achievement.”

A panel of judges reviewed all the entries and selected five finalists in each age category, for each competition.

Mr Forrest invited people in North West Victoria and Horsham in particular to view Luke’s entry by visiting the National Youth Week website and participating in View and Vote.

All Talent Competition finalist entries are now on the National Youth Week website and all people in North West Victoria should support Luke by logging on to and voting for the entry on line.

View and Vote runs from 4-18 April 2005, with on-line votes tallied and the winners announced on 5 May 2005. Finalists are in the running to win fantastic prizes and opportunities for work experience in their chosen industry.

Mr Forrest also invited young people to find out about events being planned in North Western Victoria during National Youth Week, by visiting the ‘What’s On’ guide on the website.

“The National Youth Week website is a great source of information offering the latest news, on line competitions and details of the events planned for the week,” Mr Forrest said.
