USC will join with industry sponsors in recognising the best and brightest business, arts and law students at its annual awards and prizes ceremony tomorrow night (Friday 19 May).

This year’s Faculty of Arts, Business and Law Awards and Prizes ceremony, to be held at USC’s Innovation Centre auditorium from 6pm, will feature the presentation of dozens of awards including three new Law prizes.

Buderim’s Blake Crook will receive the new $500 Argon Law Prize for the highest achiever in Commercial Law, along with the $800 McCullough Robertson Law Prize for gaining the best results in Corporations Law.

Callum Lee of Sippy Downs and Zachary Smithers of Redcliffe will share the $500 Focus Family Law Prize for the highest-achieving student in Family Law.

And Chelsea Wallis of Marcus Beach will receive the prestigious Una Prentice Award, provided by the Women Lawyers Association of Queensland to the highest-achieving graduating female law student at each of the law schools in the state.

Hervey Bay’s Myles Kreis will be the first USC Fraser Coast student to receive a faculty prize, following the University’s expansion into the region last year. He has tied with Adam Strauss of Yandina for the $500 CPA Australia Prize for the highest-achieving first-year Accounting student.

Regional and national businesses, associations and individuals have joined with USC in providing more than 40 awards, prizes, bursaries and sponsorships, totalling almost $50,000, for outstanding students.

Samantha Willshire of Pacific Paradise will be presented with three awards. Her grade point average of 6.9 out of a possible 7 secured the $1,170 CPA Australia Prize for the highest-achieving third-year graduating Accounting student, shared with Leonie Corr of Caboolture.
