Residency

A nominee is a resident of a town/city/shire if they consider the town/city or shire their primary place of residence. For example, several nominees are required to train and compete for extended periods internationally to compete at the level they have attained; however, they return to their permanent residence within their host local authority when in the NQSF region. Membership of local sports club or association assists proof of residency. North Queensland born Golf Star Karrie Webb is an example of a person who could not be nominated because she resides full time in another country.
