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.

Cr Williams said Clayton should be very proud of his achievement.

"Only 20 Prime Minister's medals were issued throughout Queensland and Clayton's parents and teachers are overjoyed with his success," he said.

Larissa and Vincent Mahoney recently moved to the region from Weipa with their three sons all attending Clermont State School.
