Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

HER pas­sion for the coun­try won Biggen­den’s Sheree Bed­dows the ti­tle of Peo­ple’s Choice Ru­ral Am­bas­sador at this year’s Bris­bane Ekka.

Sashed as Ru­ral Am­bas­sador for the Bur­nett Sub-cham­ber last month, Ms Bed­dows com­peted for the state ti­tle last week.

Peo­ple’s Choice Ru­ral Am­bas­sador was cho­sen from and by the state fi­nal­ists, Ru­ral Am­bas­sador Estelle Dry­nan said.

Ms Bed­dows won, based on num­ber of votes, for her friendly pre­sen­ta­tion, said.

The pop­u­lar win­ner said meet­ing other ru­ral am­bas­sadors at the an­nual city meets coun­try agri­cul­tural show had proved an in­spi­ra­tion.

Ms Bed­dows ex­plained there was such a “vast va­ri­ety” in how they ran their shows and a big push to get the younger gen­er­a­tion in­volved.
