Wool scholarship is open
Young people with a passion for the sheep and wool industry are encouraged to apply for the 2019 Peter Westblade Scholarship.
In its eighth year, the 12-month scholarship provides opportunities to experience all aspects of the sheep and wool industry.
Open to young people aged 18 to 30, the scholarship honours the late Peter Westblade, a Lockhart sheep producer passionate about breeding profitable sheep, and a supporter of young people interested in agriculture.
The 2018 scholarship recipients are Tasmanian woolgrower Anna Cotton and Joe Walden, from Yass.
Applications close on December 21, with applicants short-listed in early February for interviews by an industry panel.
