Could 2020 be your year to shine? Apply now for the AgriFutures™ Rural Women’s Awards, with applications closing on January 26.

These are Australia’s leading award in acknowledging and supporting the essential role women play in rural and regional businesses, industries and communities.

Darwin local and employee of the Department of Primary Industry and Resources, Zoe Malone took out the 2019 title and encouraged Territory women to put their hand up and apply for the 2020 awards.

Ms Malone’s project, the Village Green, aims to make it easier for volunteers and community groups to navigate their way through compliance and governance demands.

If you’re a woman who has an innovative idea that could empower women, support regional businesses and communities or Australia’s rural industries, the AgriFutures™ Rural Women’s Award is for you.

The award is open to all women over the age of 18 involved in rural industries (agriculture, forestry and fisheries), rural and regional businesses and rural and regional communities. No formal qualifications are required and location is no barrier.

Each state/territory winner is awarded a $10,000 bursary from Westpac, and represents their state at the national awards. The national winner receives an additional $10,000 bursary from Westpac and the runner-up receives $5,000.

In addition to the Westpac bursary, state and territory winners gain access to professional development opportunities and alumni networks.
