The Enterprising Rural Women Awards (ERWA) offer women who run their own rural businesses the opportunity to showcase their innovative rural enterprise and gain recognition for their achievements.

Rural Women New Zealand invite entries from businesswomen who have strong entrepreneurial skills, are innovative, and embrace new technology, and are active in their rural community.

2016 ERWA categories:

Each category winner receives $1,000 in prize money and a trophy, with a further $1,000 being awarded to the supreme winner who is judged as an outstanding rural businesswomen.

“We look forward to hearing from many amazing businesswomen telling us about their achievements and how they have contributed to their rural community,” says Wendy McGowan, National President, Rural Women New Zealand.

Latitude Magazine’s Joanne Taylor, winner of last year’s supreme award encourages rural women to “just do it” and enter the competition. “It makes you look at all aspects of your business, from where you started, the journey of your business and seeing how far you have come. The support you get from the many people within Rural Women New Zealand is fantastic.”
