Kealy – nominate now for Rural Women’s Awards

The Nationals Member for Lowan Emma Kealy is encouraging local women involved in primary industries and rural businesses to nominate for the 2019 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award.

The award acknowledges and supports the essential role women play in rural industries, businesses and communities.

Each state and territory winner will receive $10,000 to bring their innovative projects to life, access professional development opportunities and national Alumni networks.

Ms Kealy said the 2019 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award provided a platform to inspire and support women to use and develop their skills to make a difference to rural Australia.

“I encourage women in the Lowan Electorate who are actively contributing to our rural communities and who are passionate about their work and their community to apply for the award,” she said.

Applicants can live in the country or city, with applications judged on the impact and benefits to rural Australia.

Nominations for the 2019 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award are now open and close on 31 October 2018.
