Drum roll please...

It is with great honour that I congratulate all of our 2018 Rural Ambassador and Young Judges and Paraders championship winners. Announced at the recent Royal Adelaide Show, this year’s champions represent the future of our industry and of the Australian Agricultural Show movement.

Our winners, and indeed all of the competitors, play an integral role in both the show community and the greater agricultural sector.

On behalf of the ASA, I would like to formally recognise the efforts and achievements of our 2018 championship winners.
