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 2019 Queensland Ag Shows Gala, held in Toowoomba 19 January 2019. 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.
