Hannah Lord is the Young Canberra Citizen of the Year

By johnboy - 19 April 2007 25

Katy Gallagher has announced that Hannah Lord bears the title of 2007 Young Canberra Citizen of the Year.

Some brief googling and a Scouts web page suggests this could be a picture of her:

Why is she so special?

“She has won a Queens Scout Award in 2005 and in 2006 was a Team Leader of 42 young people in the Solomon Islands Project as part of a United Nations and the Scouts ACT project.

She is also a member of the ACT Youth Orchestra where she plays both piano and the violin.

“Hannah’s compassion and dedication towards others in the community is commendable,” Ms Gallagher said.”

What’s Your opinion?

Ha Dan!
I imagine she is a great girl, but I can’t help thinking of the ABC series “We can be heroes”, that had that charity girl as one of the Australian of the year nominees. Fargin’ funny.

Apologies 😛

I couldn’t help myself after Meconium’s comment. I will continue to contribute elsewhere with my usual high standard of commentary and opinion. 😛

i take issue with the use of a koala as a woggle. would have never have happened in my day.
shows that when you suppress good old fashioned bastardisation, standards start slipping.
