Queensland Shows Awards

ABOUT THE QUEENSLAND SHOWS AWARDS

The Queensland Shows Awards (QSAs) serve to recognise excellence in the agricultural show movement and are an initiative of the Next Generation Committee. 

The QSAs serve to acknowledge the contributions of not just the show societies and events hosted, but the people whose tireless efforts embody what the agricultural show movement is all about. 

They encourage teams and individuals to innovate and maintain their commitment to achieving excellence.  

The Awards will announced during the Queensland Ag Shows Gala Dinner on Saturday 14th March 2020 in Rockhampton to be held in conjunction with the 2020 Queensland Ag Shows Annual General Meeting.

 

The awards are a superb opportunity for the industry to come together and celebrate with our peers and thanks to the generous support of Sandstream Etching, the QSAs will be celebrated with beautiful trophies to recognise the awardees.
