Mossman Show ambassador hunt
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.
