Winners in the competition, were presented their sashes on Saturday morning.
Head steward, Vicki Wilson said the Royal Bathurst Show Young Rural Achiever Awards attracted record entries in 2022, with 86 students from Bathurst and its surrounds being part of the competition.
The awards were open to anyone aged 12-28 who are involved in the show movement, agriculture, related industry or anyone who shows initiative or is involved in the local community.
Ms Wilson said the awards were open to both men and women and were a chance for young people to show the community what they are achieving.
She said the awards look to promote excellence across all areas, and were an opportunity for young people to gain experience and showcase their talent.
She said there were not many organisations that run a competition where young children can gain interview experience and do a resume.
"They are asked questions on their involvement in community, even their knowledge of agriculture.
"It can be anything, they can be asked about their ambitions, goals, even how they present themselves in an interview."
She said the questions provoked a lot of thought from applicants.
