From drought to crease-free cotton, young researchers stand tall with prestigious awards


It may be the only time in their lives they have been called tall, but two winners of this year’s Young Tall Poppy Science Awards were more than happy to accept the accolade.

Bradley Moggridge and Madeline Mitchell are two of six outstanding young researchers from the ACT to be recognised with prestigious Young Tall Poppy Science Awards at a ceremony at the Australian Academy of Science in Canberra last Saturday, 3 September.

From the role of Indigenous perspectives on drought and water management to engineering a crease-free form of cotton, these tall poppies of science are working on projects that will benefit all Australians.
