As overall winner, Roscoe went on to the zone final at Coolum, hosted by Coolum Beach Lions Club and Coolum Beach Lioness Club, where he represented the Cooloola club well without taking the step to the regional final.

“We look forward to holding another Youth of the Year program next year with increased participation,” Mrs Bauer said.

“We thank the schools and their staff for their participation and the parents for encouraging such wonderful young people.”
