Northern Territory finalists announced for the AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award 2018

Three inspiring Territorians have been named as finalists in the Northern Territory (NT) AgriFuturesTM Rural Women’s Award.

  • Linda Blackwood is working on a Station Site Access accreditation program that would improve risk-management, increase efficiency and reduce administration costs, with contractors lodging their information into an app or website.
  • Amber Driver is planning a number of workshops for women in the Territory’s rural communities to give them the tools they need for prosperity and success.
  • Annette Howie has established Country Connections NT, a network that provides rural, regional and remote women across the Territory with links to support services, community groups, government and private enterprise.

The NT winner will be announced in Darwin on 21 March 2018. The winner will receive a $10,000 bursary to bring their project to life, and will represent the Territory as a finalist in the national award.

This recognition is well-deserved and we wish the finalists all the best.
