Mackay Regional Sitting of Parliament

Mackay Youth Parliament

Mackay Youth Parliament

The Mackay Youth Parliament was held on 4 May 2011 at the Mackay Grande Suites. Over 90 students from across the Mackay region participated in this event, with youth MPs giving speeches on the regional contribution to Queensland's society and economy.

Speaker Mickel presided over the Youth Parliament and hosted a media conference with student leaders about the event. Speaker Mickel announced to the media that he was particularly impressed with a number of speeches and was going to invite youth MPs to attend the upcoming regional sitting of Parliament to assist with official duties.
