This event was held in September 2018 to announce the Young Tall Poppy Science Award winners.
Dr Alana Grech from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University was named the overall Queensland Young Tall Poppy Scientist of the Year for 2018.
Each of the 14 young scientists delivered a one minute pitch on the research and communication activities that led to them being short listed for the award.
The event was held at the Queensland Museum and attended by guests from the scientific community as well as award nominees’ family members.
