If you know a woman who inspires and wants to make a difference in rural and regional communities then please encourage her to apply.

It is important to think of this as an Award to do something, not as an Award for something that has already been done.

If you have an idea, initiative or project that you want to bring to life, then this is your opportunity to make it happen!

The Award provides a platform to inspire and support Australian women to use and develop their skills to benefit their industries and communities.
