Although the 2020 Ekka was cancelled due to COVID-19 planning is now underway for the 2021 show.
High school and youth groups from across Queensland are given the opportunity to highlight the quality and variety of their local region’s produce, putting together large produce displays featuring everything from fruit and vegetables to grasses and grains.
These produce exhibits play an important role in connecting students and agricultural producers. As a reward for the large effort in producing these displays, students have the chance to win monetary prizes, banners and trophies.
This competition is aligned and recommended for Year 11 students. However, all year levels are welcome to enter.
