The Light Up Your Town Christmas light competition has been run and won for another year. Well done to all of the fantastic entries (around 40 all up).
Councillors Gail Godwin-Smith, Charlie Brimblecombe, Gai Sypher and Christine Rolfe were joined on the judging panel by council staff and representatives from 4Hi and the Central Queensland News. Youthinc members joined the judging panel for Blackwater and Bluff.
Each entries was scored on originality, coordination and Christmas spirit with the top two in each town winning a prize.
This year Barry and Carol Cross of 8 Jeppesen Drive, Emerald, took out the Beryl Callaghan Spirit of Christmas Award. The award is presented to the Emerald residence that best demonstrates the spirit of the festive season. The Callaghan family contributed an additional $100 for the prize this year, in memory of their mum, and Queen-of-Christmas, the late Beryl Callaghan.
Thank you to everyone who was involved this year and helped us to light up the Central Highlands!
