MBRC innovation awards Finalists revealed for 2017

Solutions for firefighters, 4X4s, forklifts and fussy babies are just some of innovations that have been unveiled as finalists for Moreton Bay Regional Council’s 2017 Innovation Awards.

 

Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Allan Sutherland revealed the finalists for the second annual innovation showcase.

 

“Across all six categories, including the two new youth categories, our judges had their work cut out for them narrowing down their favourite innovations and solutions,” Mayor Sutherland said.

 

“The judges were thoroughly impressed with the ideas that local residents had come up with to solve even the simplest of problems. It demonstrates the depth of innovative and entrepreneurial minds in the Moreton Bay Region.

 

Mayor Sutherland said the finalists came from across the region, including Bellmere, Bribie Island, Burpengary, Caboolture, Deception Bay, Griffin, Kallangur, Lawnton, Margate, Moodlu, Morayfield, Narangba, Newport, Strathpine and Rothwell.

 

“To be selected as a finalist in a region that has more than 25,000 businesses generating more than $13.125 billion dollars each year is an impressive effort. I commend all the finalists for making it to this stage of the competition.

 

With the finalists unveiled, Mayor Sutherland said it was now the community’s chance to have their say and vote for their favourite entry with the Telstra People’s Choice Award, and due to popular demand he had personally requested that voting open a day earlier on November 30.

 

“There are so many outstanding entries in this year’s awards and we want to hear who you think should take out the $2,500 prize.

 

“When you vote you’ll go into the draw to win an iPad.

 

“Simply head onto www.moretonbayinnovationawards.com.au and select out of the nominated businesses your favourite idea or solution.

 

“You have until 12pm, February 23 to vote before the winner will be announced at the 2017 Innovation Awards Gala Night.”
