Tasmania is an island of innovation. It’s location, split as it is from mainland Australia, means the state relies more on its own than looking outside. And that means great things for ingenuity.
Let me show you what I mean…
- Australia’s first art exhibition was held in Hobart in 1837
- The Van Dieman’s Land Scientific Society (Australia’s first scientific society) was founded here in 1829
- An item I use daily, the notepad, was invented by JA Birchall in 1902 (Birchall’s is one of my favourite stores in Launceston).
In the spirit of all this island innovation, Business & Baby on Board is in the running for an Innovative Tasmania Award.
There are 32 nominees in the inaugural Innovative Tasmania Awards and I’m thrilled my book is one of them!
Now comes the fun part – voting. If you agree Business & Baby on Board is innovative, please take a few minutes and vote for it in the Sport, Leisure and The Arts category (and vote for an innovation in each of the other four categories while you’re at it).
Thanks in advance for your vote. You have until September 30, so head to the Innovative Tasmania Awards voting page and get judging!
