Ideas wanted to make Qld healthier

THE titles of Queensland’s healthiest community, school, and workplace, and a $1.6 million prize pool are up for grabs as part of the 2010 Healthy Queensland Awards.

Premier Anna Bligh launched the awards yesterday and encouraged Queenslanders to get involved and submit entries.

“The goal of the Healthy Queensland Awards is to reward communities, schools and workplaces that help Queenslanders be more active, make healthier food choices, achieve and maintain a healthy weight, be smoke-free and encourage responsible drinking,” Ms Bligh said.

Applications close December 15, 2010.
