You can win big by shopping locally

IF you're looking to add the silver lining to your Christmas celebrations this year, be sure to get your entry in to the Santa's Little Helper competition.

The competition really is a win-win opportunity as CQ News teams up with Central Highlands businesses to give you plenty of great prizes.

And just in time for Christmas too!

CQ News general manager Karin-ane King said the Santa's Little Helper competition was a fantastic way to support the local stores in the region, especially in the lead up to Christmas.

"With only three weeks to go, it's time to get your stamps collected and your entry in,” she said.

"With $1600 worth of vouchers to be won, you can't go wrong when you shop at the participating stores this Christmas.”

To get your name in the draw for a wide range of great prizes, simply spend $10 or more at a participating business from today until Friday, December 16, and get your entry form stamped.

Once you have collected 10 stamps, you can submit your form by dropping it into the CQ News office at Shop 5/104 Egerton St, Emerald, or by posting it to CQ News, PO Box 259, Emerald.

"It really can't be any easier to win big this Christmas,” Mrs King said.

"So get shopping and stamping and hopefully you will be named a winner.

"With 30 prizes to be won, there is sure to be something to suit everyone!”

The winners are announced on December 23.
