Showgirl and Rural Ambassador

Since its inception in 1983 the Showgirl Awards has offered the opportunity to hundreds of young Queensland women to become involved in one of the great Australian traditions - their Local Show. The Awards are just one of the many ways that allow the youth of Queensland to participate in their local Show. Showgirl Awards, Rural Ambassador and Young Judges are all hosted by the Queensland Chamber of Agricultural Societies the governing body of Queensland Shows. The aim is to broaden the knowledge and participation of our youth in the Show Movement.

The aim of the "MARSH Rural Ambassador Awards" is to highlight the importance of young people in rural and regional Queensland, in particular those associated with the Agricultural Show movement. The awards identify 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.
