Two prizes

TWO Rockhampton school students have gained third-place prizes in the 2009 Buy Smart Awards.

Shania Dekkers won the placing in the year 5 to 7 category for her educational video, and was awarded $150 and $500 for her youth group.

Cassidy Weisse from the Cathedral College was awarded in the year 10 to 12 category for her software presentation on planning for Schoolies.

She was also awarded $150 and $500 for her school.

Minister for Fair Trading Peter Lawlor said the Buy Smart competition challenged students to create fun and innovative ways to spread financial and consumer messages.
