Nominations for the Rural Women’s Award are now open
The NSW-ACT Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC) Rural Women’s Award are now open.
The award celebrates individuals who are helping to effect change and strengthen outcomes for primary industries.
The winner will receive $10,000 to implement their award idea and have the opportunity to participate in the RIRDC Australian Institute of Company Directors’ course.
Minister for Primary Industries Niall Blair said the award recognises emerging and inspiring women in rural and regional communities across NSW.
“Women play an important role in ensuring the survival of many of their communities – and this award is so important in recognising the hard work of these women and all that they do for regional NSW. That’s why I am calling on the community to nominate exceptional and highly-skilled women in their field, or encourage them to apply for this unique opportunity,” Mr Blair said.
Applications close on Friday 30 October 2015 with the winner announced at a gala dinner in March 2016.
