Moss­man Show am­bas­sador hunt

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - SAM SMALLBONE

DAG­WOOD dogs, screa­min­duc­ing rides and fairy floss is just a snapshot of this year’s fun filled Moss­man Show which is kick­ing off with a quest to find am­bas­sadors.

Each year crowds of lo­cals gather at the Moss­man Show to show­case the in­dus­tries, skills and in­di­vid­ual tal­ents from the Dou­glas re­gion with the help of three am­bas­sadors.

Lo­cals are en­cour­aged to en­ter in the cat­e­gories of ju­nior am­bas­sador, open am­bas­sador or char­ity am­bas­sador for this year’s event.

The in­au­gu­ral ju­nior am­bas­sador cat­e­gory is open to boys and girls aged 12 to 17, the open am­bas­sador is open to men and women aged 18 to 30 and the char­ity am­bas­sador will be awarded to the high­est over­all fundraiser.

The cho­sen am­bas­sadors will help raise money for the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion and the Moss­man and District show by vol­un­teer­ing time to par­tic­i­pate in all the events.

Last year’s am­bas­sador Tay­lor Guthrie en­cour­ages young peo­ple to en­ter and de­scribed it as “a re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence”.

“It is re­ward­ing to work along­side some of the gen­er­ous lo­cals who do­nate their time to help oth­ers,” she said.

“We fundraise for the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion and for the Moss­man Show by get­ting peo­ple from lo­cal busi­nesses and schools in­ter­ested in the event.

“It’s great be­cause you are do­ing some­thing for the com­mu­nity and you meet so many peo­ple who con­stantly do­nate their time and en­ergy into help­ing peo­ple.”

Each en­trant must be be­tween the age of 12 and 30 years and must be spon- sored by a busi­ness or club to en­ter the competition.

Each en­trant will be judged on ap­pear­ance, poise, per­son­al­ity, their knowl­edge of the Moss­man and District Show So­ci­ety and their knowl­edge of the work of the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion. Clos­ing date for the nom­i­na­tions is Thurs­day, May 12, at 5pm.

En­try forms are avail­able by call­ing Deb­o­rah Kachel on 4098 8225 or Cathy Verri on 4098 1563.
