Dead­line looms for en­ter­pris­ing women

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Women look­ing at new ways of pro­mot­ing their small ru­ral busi­ness should look no fur­ther than the Ru­ral Women New Zealand En­ter­pris­ing Ru­ral Women Award 2012.

‘‘ With the dead­line of March 16 now loom­ing, we’re re­mind­ing women to send their en­tries in,’’ said Ru­ral Women New Zealand na­tional pres­i­dent Liz Evans.

In their fourth year, the awards at­tract wel­come pub­lic­ity for both en­trants and win­ners.

‘‘Ru­ral Women New Zealand’s aim is to grow dy­namic ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties and giv­ing a boost to women in ru­ral busi­ness is a very pos­i­tive way of achiev­ing this,’’ said Mrs Evans.

The di­ver­sity of en­trants has seen past win­ners in­clude an an­i­mal home­opa­thy busi­ness, a farm walk and homes­tay en­ter­prise, a forestry truck­ing com­pany, a chil­dren’s merino sock pro­ducer and a tra­di­tional-style cheese maker.
