WAROONA AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY – RURAL AMBASSADOR 2016

The Waroona Agricultural Society is very proud to announce

Kirstin Waller

as our 2016 Rural Ambassador.

 

Kirstin lives in Hamel. Her keen interests are equestrian riding and eventing, reading and engaging in outdoor

activities on her family’s property.

She attended part of her primary and secondary schooling in Waroona and

currently works as a Medical Receptionist in Pinjarra.

She is also studying Massage, has gained a Diploma in Management,

Cert III in Agriculture and Business and Cert IV in Human Resources.

Kirstin proudly represented Waroona Agricultural Society as Rural Ambassador in 2015 and was successful in winning the South West Region Rural Ambassador.  She then progressed to the State Rural Ambassador finals where she was the only competitor to recite her speech without notes.

This year, she has taken on the challenging task of Chief Halter Steward at our 2016 Show.

We are delighted to have Kirstin as part of our team, setting a leading example of youth contributing voluntary work to our community.

RURAL AMBASSADOR AWARDS COMPETITION:

The Rural Ambassador Competition is a National Competition aimed at young Rural Adults who have a passion for living and working in rural communities.

The competition aims to discover the next generation of rural leaders who have the desire to represent and promote their community, their region and their state. Successful entrants are given the opportunity to meet and network with likeminded representatives from around the state, around the country and around the Commonwealth. Where they will meet state and federal decision makers and leaders in agriculture and education and be able to input their point of view, ask the hard questions and make important contacts.

To be eligible to enter, candidates just need to have the desire to stand up for Rural Australia, have a basic agricultural and rural knowledge, and be prepared to ‘have a go’. They will experience some tough competition, make lifelong friends and have a damn good time.

 

MISS SHOW GIRL COMPETITION

The Miss Show Girl Competition commenced in 1975 as a suggestion by the Royal Agricultural Society.

The Waroona entrant on six occasions has represented the South West Zone of Agricultural Societies.

*Those entrants who have represented the South West Zone are shown with an asterisk alongside their name.
