The driving force behind some of Gladstone State High School's service activates, Hannah hopes her passion for causes is an inspiration to other young residents.

She created and led the school's only student-run social justice group for two years.

Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers said her commitment and leadership had been recognised by many organisations.

"She is a focused young citizen who has contributed significantly to key community campaigns," Cr Sellers said.

"Hannah Displays a mature outlook and is a remarkable young citizen who has continued to balance her academic achievements alongside a continual dedication to community service."

The youth mentor will return from overseas and be given her well earned reward.
