SHOWGIRL, JUNIOR SHOWGIRL & JUNIOR SHOW AMBASSADOR
The Showgirl/ Junior Showgirl/Junior Show Ambassador competition seeks young Sunshine Coast locals to represent the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show for 12 months. The role encourages and promotes the Agricultural Show Movement to the youth of Queensland. Entrants are selected for their knowledge, presentation, passion for the Agricultural Show movement and their community. The competition is no beauty contest, nor is it an intelligence test. It is an award presented to young Sunshine Coast locals who raise the profile of our Show. The award provides an opportunity to excel in leadership, community involvement, key management and confidence. The Junior Showgirl category is open for entrants up to 16 years of age and Junior Show Ambassador for both genders is open to all entrants aged between 9-13 years.
The Rural Ambassador Awards are open to all genders, twenty to thirty years of age who have a strong commitment to the rural industries and an involvement and passion for the Agricultural Show movement. The aim of the 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 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 like Show Girls is run on four levels, our local Show winner progresses to a Sub-Chamber final where the winner competes in the State Final held during the Royal Queensland Show (EKKA). The winner of the State Final then competes at the National Final held at a State Royal Show. This is a national competition, but with New Zealand joining us in 2008 it has expanded to international status.
This category was first introduced in 2015 to allow people with a disability the opportunity
to be a part of the Show movement . The 'All Abilities' not only enables entrants to
promote our Show alike the Showgirl/ Junior Showgirl Teen and Rural Ambassadors but
raise the profile of disabilities awareness in our region.
