She won the Leadership category of the 2017  QRRRWN Strong Women Leadership Awards in recognition of her role in promoting rural journalism.

“I am both honoured and humbled to have been bestowed the Leadership Award by the QRRRWN Strong Women Leadership awards for my work as former President of the Rural Press Cub Queensland and current president of ACAJ,” Genevieve said.
