The NHMA Committee is pleased to announce the updated Wishart Award.
Geoff Wishart was a great supporter of the Heritage Machinery movement from the beginning, he was a founding member of the NHMA.
This award was set up several years ago to pay tribute to Geoff and the efforts of restorers at the National Rallies.
The NHMA Committee is committed to carry on with this great award and has updated the criteria and added to the number of awards available. This award is to encourage not only NHMA Member Clubs and their Members to put on the best displays possible but to encourage all heritage machinery enthusiasts.
We would like to encourage you to start thinking of the display you are going to bring to our next NHMA National Rally at Jondaryan Woolsheds in August 2025. The criteria for each award is set out below. We have set the criteria so any club or junior has the chance to win the award.
