Southern Cross Care and Anika Molesworth have been announced as semi-finalists in the NSW/ACT Regional Achievement and Community Awards. 

Ms Molesworth is in the running for the Prime Super Agricultural Innovation Award for her work.

The 29-year-old’s career in agriculture and environmental sustainability has taken her around the world from her home at Rupee Station. 

She is a much-sought after speaker for her advocacy of how to produce more food for a growing population but with a smaller environmental footprint. 

Her various roles in farming and climate organisations have given her a unique voice and one that is shaping rural communities in Australia and internationally. 

Southern Cross Care is a semi-finalist in the Australian Business Achievement Award. Southern Cross has contributed to the community not only through its care of the frail and elderly but through partnerships with other organisations to promote innovation, health and wellbeing. 

It has 320 staff, making it one of the biggest employers in the city, and offers staff development and training as a key aspect of the organisation. 

Southern Cross Care are also a finalist in the Meaningful Ageing Australia Quality in Pastoral and Spiritual Practice Awards.

The judging to determine the finalists will take place on Wednesday, September 26. Winners will be announced at an Awards Gala Presentation Dinner on November 16.
