Jann Stuckey MP, Member for Currumbin, is encouraging local organisations and community groups to host a community-focussed event during the 2011 Queensland Week.

“Funding up to $10,000 per event is available from the Queensland Government, which could make all the difference in organising an event for the community,” Ms Stuckey said.

“Events should reflect and celebrate the essence of Queensland, and all that our wonderful state has to offer.

“This could be an exhibition, festival, barbeque or workshop – anything with a theme relating to Queensland and our unique way of life.   

“Queensland Week will be held between Saturday 4 and Monday 13 June 2011, but start planning for your event now as applications for funding close on 3 September 2010.

“For more information on Queensland Week or to see if you are eligible for funding, visit www.queenslandweek.qld.gov.au or phone (07) 3405 5215
