Tim Robinson - President ASC Youth Group of NSW
The RAS Rural Achievers have always been enthusiastic young individuals, who are passionate about their communities, careers and agriculture in general. I was very proud to be selected as the 2007 NSW Rural Achiever, and to be recognised as part of this inspirational group.
The RAS Rural Achiever Competition showcases some of the State’s finest young men and women, who are achieving great success in agriculture across NSW. These young people will go on to be the great leaders and business people in their local communities and beyond.
Two of my most memorable experiences as the 2007 NSW Rural Achiever were participating in the 100th Grand Parade at the Sydney Show, and having the honour to meet the Governor General, His Excellency Major General Michael Jeffery at the 150th Albury Show.
I was furthered honoured, recently, when I was awarded the title of 2008 National Rural Ambassador, an accolade which has not been won by NSW before. This competition includes all the Australian State winners and the National Rural Achiever from New Zealand.
As the 2008 National Rural Ambassador, I am looking forward to continuing my work in the promotion of the Country Show movement, the RAS Rural Achiever Competition and all the benefits which come from a career and lifestyle in modern agriculture.
