MANSFIELD’S Julie Aldous may not have won the National Rural Women’s Award but was still a winner in many eyes and has been highly praised.

Announced last Wednesday at a gala dinner in Canberra, Ms Aldous attended along with Cathy McGowan (MHR, Indi) and Voices for Indi president, Alana Johnson.

Ms Aldous took out the Victorian State Award earlier this year which gained her a $10,000 study bursary and took her into the judging for the national award.

She was nominated for her role in developing and overseeing the Mansfield Secondary College Agribusiness Program encouraging students to take on work in the agricultural sector and working with local farmers.

Minister for Agriculture and Food Security Peter Walsh has congratulated Ms Aldous for strongly representing Victoria at the 2014 RIRDC Rural Women’s Award.

“The RIRDC Rural Women’s Award celebrates the achievements of rural women and recognises the work they do to drive innovation, productivity and sustainability in primary industries,” Mr Walsh said.
