The Centenary bods are celebrating the 10,000th entry to their “Like Canberra” campaign:
ACT Chief Minister Katy Gallagher today revealed that the Like Canberra community engagement campaign received its 10,000th nomination yesterday – coinciding with the start of the 100-day countdown to the national capital’s big birthday.
“Since the Like Canberra campaign launched in October Canberrans have nominated a huge range of reasons why they like their city,” the Chief Minister said.
“There are already some strong themes, including the beautiful open spaces and nature reserves in every suburb and the ability to be in the city one minute and the country the next,” the Chief Minister said.
The Like Canberra local engagement campaign is being run over three stages, with the nomination period ending on December 31.
On January 14 the voting phase will begin, which will allow the people of Canberra to cast their vote to decide on the Top 100 things to like about Canberra. Canberra’s Top 100 list will be announced close to the Centenary birthday on March 12.
And don’t forget the sure to be cult hit “Like Canberra” tshirts are on sale at the Northbourne Tourism Centre.
