Young Katherine singer/songwriter Gypsy Schmidt won a Junior section of a Music Talent Quest at Coolalinga Central yesterday.
At just 16 years of age, Gypsy performed her own song '2am' and impressed the judges with her talent.
She attends Katherine High School and mother Samantha Phelan says she has benefited greatly from a newly developed music program at the school.
Gypsy won a trophy, cash prize and an invitation to perform at next year's Freds Pass Rural Show in May.
The 2020 music talent quest was sponsored by Freds Pass Rural Show.
