Max hits target in topic and design

SOUTH Grafton High School student Max Rose has earned himself the Commissioner's Award in the Fair Trading 2013 Money Stuff Challenge with his Money for Minors website.

The "beautifully designed" site included several videos for teenagers on how to make wise decisions with their money and Minister for Fair Trading Anthony Roberts said Max was a deserving winner.

"I congratulate him on this outstanding entry," Mr Roberts said.

Fair Trading Commissioner Rod Stowe said the entry won because of the valuable information it provided and the detailed care Max took in presenting it.

"This is a really exceptional entry and it is clear that a lot of time and research was dedicated to it," Mr Stowe said.

The Money Stuff Challenge is an annual competition run by NSW Fair Trading, open to all high school students in New South Wales.

In addition to being presented with the Commissioner's Award , receiving $100 for himself as well as $500 for his school, Max was also short listed for the People's Choice Award.
