When it comes to exhibitions in a country agricultural show, the default thought for many people is a granny receiving a prize for the best sponge cake.

Despite the stereotype, the Harvey Show has several exhibition categories open exclusively for children and young people to enter.

With the school holidays just around the corner, local students are being asked to consider putting in an entry to this year’s show.

There is a dedicated children’s section at the show, which can entered by those of all ages under 18.
