Nominations have opened for the 2021 Steadfast young landcare leadership award, which acknowledges a person or a youth group which promotes excellence in landcare.

Steadfast managing director and chief executive Robert Kelly said he was thrilled to be sponsoring the award.

“Our youth is our future, and we want to embrace those who are passionate about food and farming research and development and educate people to help them make better choices to shape a better world,” he said.

Landcare chief executive Dr Shane Norrish said the award was a terrific opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate how younger Australians were pursuing excellence in landcare.

The organisation said it was looking for nominees who could engage and participate in managing the environment and natural resources in their local area.

State and Territory winners of the Steadfast young landcare leadership award will automatically become finalists in the 2022 national landcare awards, to be held later next year.
