The Wheatbelt Business Network (WBN) announced the winners of its Wheatbelt Business Excellence Awards at two award evenings in Kellerberrin and Moora recently. 

The WBN hosted over 170 guests at the two award evenings to acknowledge 33 finalists, which were selected after two rounds of judging. 

“Small businesses are the real heart of towns and communities across the Wheatbelt” said Amanda Walker, WBN Chair. “These awards recognise their achievements and their commitment to our communities.” 

In a first for the region, fourteen businesses were recognised as category winners at the two award nights with finalists representing all five sub regions of the Wheatbelt.

Judges included business and community leaders Leigh Ballard, current Commissioner for the Shire of Narrogin; Judy Snell, Director, RSM; Maree Gooch, business consultant and RRR Network Chair;  Steve Cole, Kellerberrin business owner; Melissa Strutt, Roobix CEO; and Katherine Jane of Lavendale Farm accommodation, York. 

The Wheatbelt Business Network will encourage all category winners to enter the WA Regional Small Business Awards to be held in Perth later this year. 

The inaugural awards were generously sponsored by the Small Business Development Corporation, the Moora Chamber of Commerce, Moora Community Resource Centre, Hon Darren West MLC and Heartlands WA.
