AgriFutures™ Rural Women's Award 2019


The AgriFutures™ Rural Women’s Award is Australia’s leading award acknowledging and supporting the essential role women play in rural businesses, industries and communities. The Award provides a platform to inspire and support Australian women to use and develop their skills to benefit their industries and communities.

If you want to create impact, innovate and make a difference and/or contribute to enhancing the prosperity of rural and regional Australia, then we want to hear from you.

Unlike previous years, you are not required to have a distinct project that you are working on (although this is also welcomed). You may have an idea, or identified a problem or opportunity that you would like to focus on. You may be in the early stages of working through how you want to contribute, or you may be well down the road to making your contribution.
