Sophia Alexandra Hall

PPA Student of the Year 2021

Our judges described Sophia’s entry as “out of this world,” making her a clear winner for Student of the Year. Sophia’s journalism has already had tangible impact, covering difficult topics such as the foster care system. Not bad for self-professed ex writing-phobe!

Highly Commended

Our judges felt that the standard of entries for Student of the Year were so high that they wanted to highly commend one more student for their incredible work.
