Each year the Rotary Club of Toowoomba receives numerous applications from Year 11 students to the National Youth Science Forum. After receiving submissions, a panel of Rotarians interviews selected students, and each year selects one student to nominate to attend the Canberra or Perth NYSF session in January of the following year.

Our 2014 nomination for NYSFwas Katie Rae (below with her family). Katie was a student at Concordia College and went to Perth in January 2014. Katie was Guest Speaker at our Club meeting on 11 November 2013.
