Rural Ambassadors
Showcasing youth in our community


      The South Australian Rural and Young Rural Ambassador Award is conducted by SA Country Shows.

                                                               Aims of the Ambassador Award


  • To highlight the importance of youth in rural South Australia and in particular the agricultural show movement.

  • To identify and encourage enthusiastic, skilful, industrious and unselfish young people.

  • To give young people a forum to express their views through education and experience and develop closer links with the primary industries in South Australia.

The Award, open to Young Men and Young Women, married or single, enables the Ambassador, to represent their Show Society at local, association, state, and possibly national level.

The rewards are numerous, as the successful Ambassadors: develop and enhance leadership skills, practice public speaking, develop professional networks with influential decision makers, access all levels of Government and key representatives from primary industries, provide a strong voice for young people in regional and rural communities and develop communication skills, particularly in the media.

The program highlights talent, creativity and ingenuity of participants and by so doing, encourages entrants to be role models and more involved in their local communities. The program also enables entrants to gain greater proficiency and develop their stature and reputation in their chosen field.
