21 finalists have been selected from some tough competition across the state.

The winners in each category will be announced at the 2016 QRRRWN Conference Gala Dinner in at the Roma Explorer’s Inn on Friday night.

QRRRWN President Alison Mobbs said the primary aim of the Awards program wasto encourage women to identify and celebrate the strengths they contribute to their rural, regional and remote communities through their participation in professional, business, community sector or volunteer activities.

“This recognition encourages others to step up to the challenges of leadership and realise the value and importance of celebrating what we do as women in rural, regional and remote areas, sometimes in very trying circumstances,” she said.

“It is a way of lifting women up to see that what they are contributing is important and that their story is worth sharing as it not only benefits them, but impacts others as well, with many inspired by the role models these women become through this process of recognition and celebration of their achievements.

“QRRRWN has also provided a series of professional development webinars to all entrants in the program as part of our ‘strong women, strong communities’ philosophy.

“Long term partner Amanda Stein from Panda Pearls and State Members Ann Leahy and Ros Bates will be on hand to present trophies and prizes to the winners on the night.

“It is tremendous to see the Queensland Government through the Department of Communities committing sponsorship towards the youth awards category. This is terrific recognition for the amazing young leaders emerging from rural, regional and remote areas.”
