“First prize was a Great Barrier Reef Adventure family cruise for 2 adults and 2 children, and was won by 2 year old Payten Connolly from Cannonvale Library.
“Three runner up prizes of return family transfers to Daydream Island for 2 adults and 2 childrenwere won by Marcos del Solar (6 years old) Bowen Library, Matilda Stokes (7 years old)Proserpine Library and Cheyenne O’Loughlin (9 years old) Collinsville Library.
