Layton and Sam fly the flag

TWO Derwent Valley men were finalists in the Australian of the Year Awards for 2009. New Norfolk’s Layton Hodgetts and former Glenora man Sam Cawthorn joined fellow Tasmanian representatives Ronnie Burns and Peter Cundall in Canberra for today’s announcement.

The Tasmanians did not receive any of the national achievements but having two Derwent Valley men among the finalists was a remarkable situation. Mr Hodgetts was the Tasmanian winner and national finalist in the Local Hero category, and Mr Cawthorn was the state winner and national finalist in the Young Australian of the Year.
