Rural Women NZ is calling for entries for its Enterprising Rural Woman Awards.
The award is open to women who own and operate a small business, with fewer than 10 full time equivalent staff, in a rural area; or who are active partners in 50% or more of the business; and have operated the business for at least two years at the date of entry.
The winner of this year’s inaugural Award was Tora Coastal Walk.
Co-owner Kiri Elworthy attributed publicity from the win for a doubling in the number of people doing the walk last month compared with October last year.
Entries for the award close on February 17 next year.
