The winning submission for each age range will be featured on RASV social media and website. The video sets will be shared with schools, previous exhibitors of the Royal Melbourne Show. Don't miss out, competition entries open on Wednesday 1 September.

Showcase your Sheep Competition

Students will prepare a mock sales pitch video on a sheep of their choice from their own stud or commercial flock. The purpose of the video is to promote/market a sheep to prospective buyers. Students are encouraged to include relevant information that supports their sales pitch, a good visual of the animal, supporting evidence in the form of actual weights, performance data and the need for true and verifiable sales information.

NB: This is a mock sales pitch video and no sheep will be sold during this competition.​
