Due to COVID-19 the 2020 AgriFutures Rural Women’s Awards were held virtually and hosted by Di Carmody. The winner was Cara Peek, a Yawuru/Bunuba woman and solicitor from Broome. The runner-up was Lauren Bell and the finalists were Kendall Whyte, Jo Ashworth, and Lucy Anderton.
In June 2020 a small sundowner was held in Broome where the Cara and Lauren are from. The national awards were cancelled this year but will resume in 2021.
