Camp leader wins rural women’s award in WA
WESTERN Australia Regional Development Minister Alannah MacTiernan congratulated Kulin community leader Tanya Dupagne on taking out the 2017 Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation WA Rural Women's Award.
The award celebrates the contributions and achievements of Western Australian women to the state's regional economy and communities.
Tanya started the Camp Kulin program four years ago to support the wellbeing of young people in the Wheatbelt. She will receive $10,000 to complete a project and hopes to build on the success of the Camp Kulin program by developing a subsidised camp for women from regional WA to develop leadership skills and promote change in their own communities.
