Schools Agricultural Showcase
This is the 26th year for the School’s Competition and the 175th year for the Show.
Each participating school will be awarded points for a compulsory static display plus five other entries that can be drawn from the 30 categories.
Samples may be taken from the static display and entered into individual exhibits. Prize money will be allocated to participating schools. Four Perpetual Shields and the Renshaw Trophy will be awarded.
This year the Agricultural Display will be based upon an Agricultural Industry or issue.
Judging is based upon the educational value (25%), quality of signage (25%), depth and creativity in presenting the Industry (25%) and visual impact (25%).
The use of signs and posters are important and need to be able to be seen easily from 3 metres away.
Each school must have at least two students who can explain the display and answer the judge’s questions.
Schools will need to nominate two other students to judge the displays for the Students Choice Award sponsored by UWS
