About Us

The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV) has a strong commitment to supporting young leaders from the food and fibre industries.

The ELVA awards are designed to motivate, inspire and encourage the next generation of leaders in agrifood and fibre. We are calling on the food and fibre industries to nominate outstanding young people for the 2020 ELVA Awards.

The Emerging Leaders in Victorian Agriculture 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.

The ELVA awards provide a unique opportunity for employers, colleagues and friends to nominate a young person they believe deserves recognition and opportunities to further their career.
Award recipient(s) 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 the RASV calendar of events.
