On Friday the 19th of November at the Tidy Towns State Awards Ceremony held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre the Governor of Western Australia and Patron of Keep Australia Beautiful WA, His Excellency Dr Ken Michael, AC, announced that Westonia had won the 2010 State Tidy Towns - Sustainable Communities Award.

This is a fantastic win for the town of Westonia, and recognises its outstanding achievements in the six categories of community action; general appearance; recycling and waste management; natural heritage conservation; enhancing cultural identity; and water conservation.

The judges commented that the community of Westonia's ambitious vision had been realised to create a town that is both a fantastic place to live and a must-visit location.

This 2010 Tidy Towns - Sustainable Communities State Award came after Westonia won the 2010 Tidy Towns - Sustainable Communities Award for the Central Wheatbelt region. It also builds on Westonia's win in the General Appearance category at state level in 2009.

Westonia is now eligible to compete in the National Tidy Towns competition, where towns from across the country are assessed under eight different categories in the process of establishing the 2010 National Tidy Towns winner.
