The award inspires and supports Australian women to use and develop their skills to benefit their industries and communities, including Victoria’s $14 billion agriculture sector.
This year’s Victorian finalists include;
- Carly Jordan, from south west Victoria, who wants to continue developing a migrant resettlement model that assists regional towns to boost their populations and economies.
- Claire Moore, from Kyneton, who wants to breed a genetically diverse range of queen bees that are healthy and adaptable in a variety of climates to address declining bee colony numbers.
- Odette Suitor, from Sunbury, who wants to continue developing a grains storage concept to improve the efficiency of grain harvest by taking the concept to industry.
The Victorian winner will be announced at an upcoming ceremony and will receive a bursary of $10,000 to implement her project.
