Butson wins another award


Illawarra teenager Macinley Butson has been recognised again for her Smart Armour creation that helps protect women having treatment for breast cancer.

The 18-year-old scientist won the Innovation and Technology award at the Woman of the Future Awards in Sydney.

The former TIGS student received $35,000 with the award.

It is her second major award this month after being awarded the Stockholm Junior Water Prize in Sweden last week.
