The ASC wishes to thank ClubsNSW as a sponsor of the Group Finals of the Young Judging and Parading Competitions. 


Once a competitor has qualified to represent a Group at Sydney Royal Show in any one of the Judging or Parading Competition State Finals, he/she may not enter another Group Final as a potential qualifier in that type of competition WITHIN THAT COMPETITION YEAR.  He/She can, however, enter any one or more Group Finals anywhere in the state, for practice (and score), in the same type of competition as one in which he/she has previously qualified as long as he/she discloses this to the Group Final organizers at the time of entry and indicates that he/she is not eligible for a placing in that event. (“qualified” means First in Merino Sheep, First or Second in Meat Breeds Sheep, Merino Fleece and Beef Cattle, and First, Second or Third in Dairy Cattle, Fruit and Vegetables and Grain. The Stud Merino Breeders Association competitions in Merino Sheep Judging at Armidale, Canberra and Dubbo are classed as Group Finals. Beef Paraders as per scaling system.)
