The aim of the Rural Achievers Award is to reward the efforts of young Australians linked to agriculture who go the extra step in contributing to viable agricultural industries, Show communities and rural areas at large. Previous entrants have seen a boost in their careers, progressing to work on successful properties, employed in agribusiness and furthering their studies in the agricultural industry. The Award is open to all residents of NSW aged between 20 and 29.
