Time to dob in a great Gympie dad for father of the year

COULD a Gympie father be Queensland's best dad?

Queensland Father of the Year 2016 nominations are open until Friday July 15 for Queenslanders to recommend a praiseworthy dad, whether it's your dad, someone else's, or an incredible father-figure from the region.

Scripture Union's Queensland Father of the Year competition identifies and honours outstanding fathers for their exceptional commitment to raising their children or for their exemplary contribution to the development of children in the community.
