Students from The University of Queensland were well represented at the annual PIA Queensland Student Academic Prize Ceremony 2021 held on Tuesday, 22 June 2021. It was a terrific event, recognising the academic achievements of students enrolled in accredited planning programs across Queensland. Great to see students, friends, family members coming together with university and industry professionals to applaud our brightest minds and the next generation of change agents for building better cities and communities #create change.
