Problem-solving is crucial to our states growth.
And there's no better way to recognise these local heroes than through the Rural Councils Victoria, Campaspe Shire Council 'Community Innovators Competition'.
A chance to highlight the special and creative work that rural Victorians are doing in their communities involving 38 councils within the Rural Councils Victoria. Shepparton is one of them.
Nominate a local within four categories: road safety, library and literacy services, fire safety and saving energy.
“Whether it’s a librarian trying new ways to reach communities in remote locations, a school principal creating a smarter way to teach students about road safety, or a farmer developing a better system for fire prevention, we want to hear about what you’re doing to work smarter in rural Victoria.”
- Campaspe Shire Chief Executive Officer Mr Jason Russell said.
The winner of each category will win $1,000 towards expanding their innovative project or program.
Nominations close at 4pm, Friday 4 May, with the winners announced on 16 to 17 May.
And if you're wondering, yes you can nominate yourself.
