Do you know a rural woman volunteer within the local community you would like to acknowledge for their contribution?

NSW Department of Primary Industries' (DPI) Rural Women’s Network program is seeking your help to uncover female volunteers within NSW rural communities before 30 July 2018.

These worthy women will be included in the NSW Department of Primary Industries Hidden Treasures Honour Roll.

Hidden Treasures is an annual initiative of the Department of Primary Industries’ Rural Women’s Network which recognises the outstanding efforts of women volunteers in NSW and promotes the valuable role of volunteering to the community.

Women are so often the backbone of families and communities and without their support many groups including charities, emergency services, the arts, environment, social justice, education and sporting organisations would struggle to survive.  

The Hidden Treasures project was initiated to promote and archive the work of these remarkable women.  It is not an award program but a public tribute to the vast number of rural women who give their time and energy to help others across their community.

An example of previous Hidden Treasures can be found at 2017 Hidden Treasures Honour Roll.

The 2018 Hidden Treasures Honour Roll will be unveiled at the NSW Rural Women’s Gathering in Merimbula on 20 October 2018. 

Nominations can be completed online at Hidden Treasures.  All rural women nominated will be included in the Honour Roll.
