Award for rural women making a difference

By Campaspe News

IF you’re a local woman in primary industries, the 2019 Rural Women’s Award wants to hear from you.

Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh said the AgriFutures award identifies and supports emerging female leaders who want to create impact, innovate and make a difference to rural and regional Australia.

He said applicants can live in rural and regional Australia or in the city but their applications will be measured on the impact and benefits to rural and regional Australia.

“I encourage women in the Murray Plains electorate who are actively contributing to rural industries and regional communities to apply,” he said.

The winner will receive a $10,000 bursary to bring their idea or project to life, access to professional development opportunities and national alumni networks.

Nominations close on October 31. Apply now at agrifutures.com.au/rwa
