Students across Gippsland have won two prestigious book prizes in recognition of their outstanding ‘civics and citizenship’.

Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester has provided all secondary schools in his electorate with autographed copies of books written by former Prime Ministers John Howard and Julia Gillard.

“The schools chose the winners but in every case, the books have gone to students who have demonstrated an interest in being good citizens of their school and making a contribution to the community,” Mr Chester said.

“In our increasingly combative national political environment, I thought it was important to provide a bipartisan prize and it was terrific that both former PMs were willing to autograph the books for me.”
