A Fantastic Opportunity!DSC_3194

This new competition is open to males and females aged sixteen to under nineteen (as at the 1st May 2018) who have a strong interest in rural industries and an involvement and passion for the Agricultural Show movement.

The aim of the "Cairns Show Young Rural Ambassador Awards" is to highlight the importance of young people in rural and regional Queensland, in particular those associated with their local Agricultural Show movement. The award identifies those people actively involved in their local Show, who have a sound knowledge of current rural issues affecting their local areas, Queensland and Australia and have a strong affiliation with agriculture.

The award seeks young people who symbolise the rural spirit - people with vitality who are forward thinking and with a passion for the land and local agricultural shows.

The competition is a local competition only and all nominees will be expected to participate in the 2018 Cairns Show by way of stewarding, announcing or presentations where possible. The winner must attend the Friday of the Cairns Show at a minimum (the level of commitment may be depend on schooling or employment and can be negotiated with the Cairns Show Association). Participation in the local QCAS Next Generation Committee will be encouraged and it is also anticipated that this competition will be a stepping stone to the Cairns Show Rural Ambassador Awards once they meet the required criteria.
