The APEN Awards for Excellence in Extension are open to all extension professionals that reside in Australasia*. These awards are open to individuals or groups, who have demonstrated excellence in extension through a work program completed within the last five years.
The winner will be required to give a presentation of their work at the APEN Conference and/or at a webinar, and to take part in publicity associated with their success.
The Award was first presented at the 1999 APEN Conference. In 2009 the Young Professional Award was renamed the APEN Amabel Fulton Award for Excellence in Extension by a Young Professional in memory of the late Amabel Fulton who was a major contributor to APEN and the development of extension in Australia.
