The E & P Stephenson Perpetual Trophy is awarded annually to the Supreme English Leicester Exhibit at the Australian Sheep & Wool Show (Bendigo). The winner is presented with a framed, engraved, photo of the winning sheep.
The E & P Stephenson Perpetual Trophy was established in 2016 in recognition of Ethel Stephenson's enormous input to furthering the English Leicester breed and to keep her name forever in the mind of breeders. The trophy is funded through a generous donation from Ethel.
The inaugural winner of the trophy was Mr. Colin Taylor with his champion ewe:
