Vote for our best waterways

A NUMBER of water projects in the Lockyer Valley and Somerset region need your help to win the annual Healthy Waterways People's Choice Award.

With voting closing at midnight on Monday, June 27, time is running out to place a vote for the projects in your area.

There are 35 volunteers, schools, groups and organisations selected as finalists in the Health Waterways Awards for their efforts to protect and improve south-east Queensland's waterways.

By supporting your favourite, you could win a $100 retail gift voucher.

Healthy Waterways chief executive officer Julie McLellan is encouraging the community to get behind the unsung heroes of our waterways.

"It is inspiring to see so many people stepping up and making a real difference," Ms McLellan said.

"The People's Choice Award is the community's opportunity to have their say, and raise awareness and support for the dedication and passion of those working tirelessly to preserve the waterways for future generations to enjoy."

Healthy Waterways has been running the program for 16 years to recognise and celebrate the importance of our waterways, and efforts to protect them.
