The Feather Clubs  Association of Queensland is pleased to be sponsoring the newly launched Richard Porter EKKA Youth Sponsorships.  

Applications are open until 28 Feburary 2017 for this year’s intake. Winners to be chosen by the end of March.

In honour of the memory of Richard Porter, a wonderful past exhibitor, steward and judge at the Royal Queensland Show, the EKKA Poultry Committee are launching this sponsorship to allow young poultry enthusiasts the opportunity to come to Brisbane and experience the Poultry Competition at the Royal Queensland Show. Those selected will have their travel costs, entries, and accommodation provided for the five days from Wednesday 9th to Sunday 13th August 2017. Students will be billeted in a family home with other sponsorship winners and transported to the showgrounds each day. They will experience stewarding, observe the judging, spend time in a workshop with Gary Phillips (our novice judges competition adjudicator), help out around the show pavilions, meet exhibitors, and speak with judges and administrators. They will also speak to members of the public about general poultry questions, attend presentation, experience the novice judges competition if they wish, and spend some time experiencing other exhibits at the Queensland Royal Show .
