On the Australian Rodeo scene, Wagin is fast being recognised as one of the best run rodeos in the country. For that reason, Wagin Rodeo Committee member Elaine Jeffs was invited to be a judge of the National Rodeo Queen competition, held at Surfer's Paradise on the Gold Coast of Queensland in September last year. Elaine's brief was to assess the girls for their social awareness.
