Call out for women leaders

Calls are going out to South Australian rural women who show leadership and are willing to help empower a new generation of female leaders.

Applications are now open for the 2018 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award, which recognises emerging leaders.

The South Australian winner will be announced on February 19, 2018, and will represent the state at the national awards in September of that year.

Each state winner will receive a $10,000 bursary from Westpac to bring their ideas to life, with the national winner receiving a further $10,000 and runner-up $5000.

Applications close at 8.30pm on October 29. For more information or to apply, visit
