This year we again have a top prize of $1000 and combined prizes of $3000 just for the schools P&C committee, it is a competition well worth entering. For those who are not familiar with the competition, the only work required by the school is getting your P&C, cane farming families and the local farming neighbours on board to place a couple of entries into the competition on the school’s behalf. Class 18003 is a competition class where there is a maximum of 1 entry per school for a first place prize of $500. This puts every school on a level playing field, so it does not matter how big or small the school is, everyone has the same chance.
To improve your chance to win the $1000 major prize, make sure your farmers also enter in the open section of the competition as each class gets points to your school. Any local sugarcane growers can contact Chief Steward of the Mackay Show Sugarcane Competition, Andrew Camilleri on 0428 597 324. Andrew can advise how to enter, as it is very easy with no entry fees. Looking forward to seeing your school’s entries.
