Emerging Leaders in Victorian Agriculture

The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) is calling on the food and fibre industry to consider outstanding young people for nomination for the 2017 Emerging Leaders in Victorian Agriculture (ELVA) Awards.

The awards recognise people under 40 years of age who have demonstrated leadership qualities and make a contribution in their profession, or to the wider industry and community.

Award recipients will receive up to $10,000 to put towards the development of their careers, and the invaluable opportunity to network with fellow industry leaders through RASV’s calendar of events.

The awards are a unique opportunity for employers, colleagues and friends to nominate a young person they believe deserves recognition and opportunities to develop their career. 

Winners of the 2017 ELVA awards will be announced at the 2017 Agribusiness Leaders Lunch on Wednesday 27 September.

Nominations Close:
Friday 18 August 2017
