The Zone 1 event was held on Saturday at the Murwillumbah Civic Centre and was hosted by the Tweed River Agricultural Society.
Entrants were presented on stage and spoke about their passions and ambitions. They also highlighted current issues experienced in rural towns and agricultural industries, displaying their knowledge of their communities and advocating for change.
Ashleigh spoke eloquently and was a fine young ambassador for the local community in a very prestigious competition.
