WHILE most were busy devouring Easter eggs during the school holidays, Dylan Treasure was hard at work creating his very own masterpiece.

For months, the Year 9 Warwick State High School student devoted hours to researching, planning and building a museum display to enter in the National History Challenge and, on August 31, it will be sent away to go up against the rest of the state.

"(The display) is about the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels and their important role in history," Dylan said.

When text books and internet sites let him down, Dylan turned to the locals of Papua New Guinea to find out the fine details the search engines didn't pick up.

"I sent questions to my uncle who lives in New Guinea and he asked the locals," he said.

If the museum display makes it through the state round, it will go to the national level of competition.

In 2010, Dylan took out the national winner for his age group and hopes to do the same again this year.

Head of SOSE Doug Wilson said he was thrilled with the effort Dylan had put in to his entry and was impressed with his initiative.

"It's highly creative, original and captures what it's all about," Mr Wilson said.

He did it all by himself, there's nothing directly connected to the school."

If Dylan wins the competition, his entry will go on display at the Australian Museum.
