AP­PLI­CA­TIONS for the 2019 AgriFu­tures Ru­ral Women’s Award will close at the end of this month, so nom­i­na­tions will soon need to be sub­mit­ted.

Agri­cul­tural In­dus­try Devel­op­ment and Fish­eries Min­is­ter Mark Furner said the award sup­ported the es­sen­tial role women play in ru­ral and re­gional busi­nesses, in­dus­tries and com­mu­ni­ties.

“The Ru­ral Women’s Award is Aus­tralia’s lead­ing award to cel­e­brate and ac­knowl­edge ex­cep­tional women from ru­ral in­dus­tries and com­mu­ni­ties,” Mr Furner said.

“I en­cour­age emerg­ing fe­male lead­ers who want to in­no­vate and make a dif­fer­ence to ru­ral and re­gional Aus­tralia to ap­ply for the award.

“Ap­pli­ca­tions for the 2019 award close on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 31, 2018.”
