Oakey Rural Ambassador Awards

The Oakey Rural Ambassador Awards is open to males and females, 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 Oakey 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 our local areas, Queensland and Australia and have a strong affiliation with agriculture.

The Oakey Rural Ambassador Awards consist of the following sections:

  • Rural Ambassador – 20 to 29 years, male/female, married/unmarried, children/no children

  • Young Rural Ambassador – 15 to 19 years, male/female

 

The Awards seek 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 run on four levels. The Oakey Rural Ambassador winner will progress to the Darling Downs Sub-Chamber Final which will be held at the Toowoomba Royal Show. If successful, the Darling Downs Sub Chamber winner will then represent the Darling Downs Region and compete 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.
