Elijah was one of five students in Queensland to win the Premier's Anzac Day Prize for 2013. He wins a trip to Gallipoli and the Western Front in April, 2013.

At the time he entered the competition, in September 2012, Elijah was a Year 10 student at the remote Doomadgee State School;
his teacher, Mrs Sarah Dolan, worked with him to produce his winning entry.
He is now in Year 12 at Spinifex State College, Mount Isa.

Congratulations to the five winners of the Premier's Anzac Day Prize for 2013,
especially Elijah, of Doomadgee, Queensland.
Off to Gallipoli today (21 April 2013)!
