Lily Huston, San Sisto College - young contributors category, 2022 recipient

“In 2021 Lily has been the Faith and Justice Captain at San Sisto College. In this role Lily has organised and led the Social Justice Group who have completed the usual school fundraisers for Caritas, St Vincent De Paul, Rosies and Catholic Mission. In addition to these for the first time in our school community, she organised a Share the Dignity Drive in Term 3. She educated our school community about Period Poverty and encouraged students to bring in period products that would be donated to Brisbane charities to support people who menstruate. This was an overwhelming success. Lily is organised and intelligent. She is able to use creative ways to engage and educate her peers. She cares about her community, volunteering for Rosies and supporting other student leaders in their projects. She has attended other schools social justice events and led her own in the college which focused on developing an understanding of sustainable fashion and being a more environmentally friendly consumer. Lily works tirelessly to be an agent of change in the world. She is very deserving of being recognised for her work in the local community and the way she has educated her peers about the global community."
