treasury-prize-winner2019.jpgCongratulations to Jasmine, Year 12 ATAR Economics, who participated in the annual state-wide Treasury – ETAWA (Economics Teachers Association for WA) Essay competition and won the first prize of $2000. This competition is open for all Year 11 and 12 ATAR Economics students.

Jasmine's topic required her to present an understanding of the current state of the Western Australian economy and what can be done to improve the WA economic performance. She presented a strong argument for diversification of the WA economy so as to make it more resilient and vibrant and suggested that the government needs to start looking at startups and make Perth the innovation capital of Australia. Well done Jasmine!
