South Australian rural women are urged to apply for the 2018 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award, which recognises emerging leaders in primary industries and regional communities.
Applications are open until 29 October. The SA winner will be announced at a ceremony as part of the Thriving Women Conference on 19 February, 2018.
Applications for 2018 no longer need a specific project to be considered eligible, and can be submitted based on an idea, identified problem or opportunity. Commercially focused projects and initiatives will also be considered.
Each state and territory winner will receive a $10,000 bursary from Westpac to bring their idea or project to life as well as access to professional development opportunities.
They will also represent their state at the national awards in September 2018, where the winner and runner-up will receive a further $10,000 and $5000, respectively.
