NYSF recipient Sam Bannister was nominated by his school principal. “It's a huge honour to be a recipient of this prestigious award. It really validates the hard work that we've all put in to our studies and our community involvement over the last few years. I'm incredibly thankful to my principal for nominating me, and for all the people that gave me the wonderful opportunities that I have embraced during my time at school.”
