Forget buying a Jeep, why not win one?

KATIE Faix has secured the ultimate Schoolies souvenir.

The Mackay teen joined tens of thousands of Schoolies on the Gold Coast for the annual end-of-school celebrations, where she won a new Jeep Compass plus a Fiji Holiday for her parents.

The inaugural Jeep giveaway was announced at Saturday's official opening ceremony.

Schoolies automatically went into the draw to win the Jeep and holiday simply by booking with schoolies.com, the event's original and number one schoolies operator for nearly 30 years.

Schoolies 2016 is off to a successful start with police, business operators and support staff praising Schoolies' behaviour.
