Waroona residents Lincoln Hawke-Dufall and Ryan Hannah and Harvey resident Jordan Brown are three of 27 lucky young West Australians selected to take a trip of a lifetime to America.

The trio will join 60 other young people from around the world selected to take part in scientific expeditions through the Alcoa Foundation’s environmental NatureBridge scholarships program.

Lincoln and Jordan were chosen because they live in communities near where Alcoa operates and because of their passion for the environment.

The pair will travel to Yosemite National Park in California with like-minded high school students to learn how their actions impact their community and the world around them.

They are part of the sponsorships where bear-spotting will be number one on the to-do list. “I applied for this scholarship because I am going to travel to a beautiful place and experience it with other kids from all over the world,” Jordan said.

“I can’t wait to see what America is like and I feel very lucky to get the opportunity to do this.”
