Maximilian writes his way to success
AN EIGHT-YEAR-OLD has been named as a finalist in a young journalist contest.

The budding young journalist said: “When I received the letter from STABILO, I was humbled and overwhelmed with joy, I couldn’t believe it. It is both an honour and a blessing being selected as a finalist and I am forever grateful to STABILO and First News for creating this writing competition.”
