Victorian Agricultural Shows RURAL AMBASSADOR AWARDS

A partnership between Victorian Agricultural Shows Ltd (VAS) and the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria (RASV)

“VAS Ltd promotes and coordinates two award programs that encourage and support young people living in rural and regional Victoria, the Victorian Agricultural Shows Rural Ambassador and the VAS Ltd. Junior Show Ambassador Award. The Awards highlight and celebrate rural and regional young people, with a particular emphasis on candidates who are involved with their local show. The Awards seek to draw attention to the talent, creativity and ingenuity of young rural Victorians and in doing so encourage the candidates to become engaged citizens across local communities.

During the Awards cycle the candidates participate in public relations and leadership seminars to enable them to polish their communication and presentation skills and prepare them for the State Finals.

Both the Victorian Agricultural Shows Rural Ambassador Awards and the Junior Show Ambassador start at the local show level and progress to a Group final where the winner is invited to compete at the State Final of each Award. It is not a requirement of either Award that the local show or field day hold a competition to determine a winner at the show/field day; how the winner at a local level is determined it entirely up to the show/field day.”
