Autism Queensland announced the winners of the 2017 Creative Futures Recognition Awards, an annual event recognising the contributions of people living with autism as well as the parents, carers, schools and businesses who support them.
The Governor of Queensland and Autism Queensland Patron, His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC and Mrs Kaye de Jersey hosted a morning tea at Government House where His Excellency presented the awards.
The annual awards, established nine years ago, were presented in six categories and acknowledge the contributions made by organisations, schools, businesses and individuals who support young people and families living with autism. The event is purposefully timed to coincide as closely as possible with the International Day of People with Disability.
The Department of Education Autism Hub, was named winner of the Business Partnership Award. This valuable partnership has provided a venue from which Autism Queensland delivers professional and parent workshops and enabled the establishment of vital after school and school holiday programs for young teens with autism.
