Since its inception in 2006, the Black Snake Creek Festival, has received excellent community support and generous sponsorship from local and regional business community as well as the Ipswich City Council and the major sponsor of 2011 festival, Energex.
As a result of this support and the hard work of the organizing committee, the festival has enjoyed a successful run which has assisted the Marburg and District Residents Association to continue its work in funding and supporting worthy community causes and individuals in time of need.
In 2011, MDRA decided to set up a Youth & Young Adults Development Program to be funded from proceeds of the Black Snake Creek Festival.
The Marburg and District Residents Association is pleased to announce that this program has commenced; the first step being to establish a set of annual awards (School Based Youth Awards) for presentation to senior students of the Marburg State School. The first round of awards was presented in early 2012 and the second round of applications is now opening.
The Shine Award (MYADP) is to be awarded twice a year and is aimed at encouraging and assisting youth and young adults to further their endeavours in a chosen field eg academic, cultural, sporting etc.
The Association is inviting young people in the local area to apply for the award which carries a framed citation or trophy, and a cash incentive of $500 to be used in assisting the Shine Awardee to advance their progress in their chosen field. Eligible individuals and groups are encouraged to apply for this award.
Age and residential eligibility requirements apply to the Shine Award.
(a) Applicant must be under 26 years of age throughout the calendar year in which the application is considered i.e. born 1987 or later.
(b) Applicant must be a resident of the town or districts of Marburg, Tallegalla, Haigslea or Glamorganvale.
