Chance to celebrate business


WIMMERA businesses are encouraged to take the time to reflect on the year that was. 

The biennial ACE Radio Wimmera Business Awards return this year with opportunities to celebrate and recognise high achieving individuals, businesses and groups across a range of categories.

Award nominations open in June and the awards night is scheduled for Friday, October 16.

Wimmera Development Association is organising the awards.

Project manager Vernetta Taylor said a gala evening would also highlight the contributions of agriculture and the positive impacts of the region’s rapidly growing migrant population.

“Typical Wimmera modesty means people don’t always put themselves and their businesses forward and celebrate success as much as we should,” she said.

“Even simply completing an application form can allow people to reflect on the achievements of their business throughout the past two years. For many people, this process is a chance to celebrate those achievements with their teams.”
