About 100 industry leaders, farmers and previous winners gathered in Adelaide on Tuesday afternoon for the AgriFutures Rural Women's Award presentation.
The award, which was won by psychologist and farmer Stephanie Schmidt, Worlds End, helps women bring to life a project or initiative to benefit rural industries and communities.
Ms Schmidt will receive a $10,000 bursary from Westpac to develop a resilience program specifically for farming couples, families and individuals.
The four finalists were Marie Ellul, Adelaide, Rebecca Sullivan, Armagh, and Kellie Taylor, Cummins.

Deputy Premier Vickie Chapman presented the award, and acknowledged the potential impact the projects - made possible by the award - could have on regional areas.
"It's an award which is highly acclaimed and nationally recognised, and is very high as a model of influence in the Australian scene," she said.
