Ru­ral busi­ness­women awards

Matamata Chronicle - - Rural Delivery -

Women run­ning small ru­ral busi­nesses are be­ing in­vited to pro­mote their ac­tiv­i­ties by en­ter­ing the Ru­ral Women New Zealand’s 2012 En­ter­pris­ing Ru­ral Women Awards.

The awards are open to small busi­nesses with 10 staff or fewer. Other cri­te­ria are that the busi­ness must have been op­er­at­ing for at least two years, and women must be ac­tive part­ners, 50 per cent or more.

Ru­ral Women New Zealand na­tional pres­i­dent Liz Evans said this was the fourth year the En­ter­pris­ing Ru­ral Women Awards had been run. ‘‘They have been very suc­cess­ful in un­cov­er­ing some ex­cit­ing busi­nesses run by women in ru­ral ar­eas,’’ she said.

En­try forms are on: ru­ral­women.org.nz.
