If you or someone you know has made an outstanding contribution to Queensland agriculture, the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries want to hear from you.
There are two awards – the Peter Kenny Medal, named after AgForce’s own General President Peter Kenny who served from 2004-2008, and the Minister’s Emerging Leader Award, specifically for candidates aged 18 to 35.
Each award comes with $3,000 in prize money.
Applicants can come from any agricultural, fisheries, or forestry field, like agribusiness, education, farm-based production, supply chain operations, research, or policy.
The awards close 5pm on 2 September, with the winners announced at the Trop Ag Conference dinner on 1 November 2022.
