CLERMONT State School Student Clayton Mahoney has been awarded a Prime Minister's NAIDOC Medal for his creative efforts in the 2011 NAIDOC Week school initiative.

The competition, designed to provide students with a greater understanding of the importance of friendship and cultural diversity, was open to all primary students and received more than 115,000 colouring-in and short story entries.
