National History Challenge Success
Hawker College warmly congratulates two of our wonderful Year 12 History students who achieved highly in the 2017 National History Challenge. At the award ceremony held at the Museum of Australian Democracy on 26 October, Jesse Blakers and Ineka Voigt were both recognised as budding historians. Jesse and Ineka were the ACT’s two finalists in the Year 11/12 category of the National History Challenge. Jesse received a Certificate of Commendation for her fine essay on Maya (South American) cultural practices. Ineka’s essay on the Indigenous Stolen Generations was selected as the winning entry in the Year 11/12 category and in the special Indigenous category. But it didn’t stop there. The final award of the night was for the ACT Young Historian of the Year. It, too, was awarded to Ineka Voigt.
