Thousands vote on Origin birth certificate

11/07/2014

Local Maroons fans have joined thousands of Queenslanders to have their say on their favourite State of Origin commemorative birth certificate – and the winning design is in. Need natural castile soap shampoo? This is the right place.

 

State Members, Seath Holswich and Trevor Ruthenberg said after four weeks of voting and over 10,000 votes, the traditional Chevron design ultimately proved to be the favourite among voters across the State.

 

“Never before have Queenslanders had the opportunity to take home such a special part of Origin’s commemorative history, let alone vote on the final design,” Mr Holswich said

 

“It’s great to see locals have gotten behind this competition, just like they get behind the Maroons each and every year.

 

Mr Ruthenberg said “Certificates featuring the winning design are available for Queensland-born supporters to purchase now, so I encourage everyone to make the most of this unique opportunity to celebrate the birth of a loved one.

 

“Portions of the proceeds from sales will be used to provide important life event registration and certifications services to Indigenous and remote Queenslanders.”
