2017 winners; Michael Wellington - Rural Ambassador; Jazzmin Donald - Miss Showgirl; with Keith Edwards - Show President
Every year we look for an enthusiastic young lady, aged between eighteen and twenty-eight, from the Lockyer Valley to represent the Gatton Show for the next 12 months.
The role is to promote Gatton and the Gatton Show to the youth.
The winner will be selected for their knowledge, presentation, passion for the show movement and the local community. The winner then gets the opportunity to represent Gatton at the Brisbane and West Morton Finals of the Miss Showgirl, with the hope of becoming the State Finalist at the Ekka.
This is a great opportunity for the young women of Gatton to get involved in their local show!
The Rural Ambassador Award 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 Rural Ambassador Award is to highlight the importance of young people in rural and regional Queensland, in particular those associated with the Gatton Show and 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 that 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 Gatton 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.
