Vote now to help school win project

THE simple act of taking a minute to vote online may help two Mundubbera schools stay in the running for a national water grant.

Boynewood State School and Mundubbera State P-10 School have applied for money from the Philmac Project, a national initiative providing individual cash grants of up to $5000 as well as in-kind support to water-related projects that benefit community organisations.

To qualify for the initiative, a project must be water related, such as upgrading or installing watering or irrigation systems, plumbing installations or water capture facilities.

"Ultimately, the funding will be allocated to projects that make a genuine difference to their local community, and have the potential to reduce water use, improve water quality or benefit the environment in some way,"General manager, marketing and development Jason Mitchell said.

Voting is open until 5pm (South Australian time) on Friday, October 16.
