EMMA Thompson has been selected as a chief steward at this year's Brisbane Ekka, making her the youngest chief steward ever.

And Ms Thompson has selected Warwick State High School student Rachael Whitton to be her associate steward in the angora section.

Ms Thompson said she was impressed with Miss Whitton's skills.

"She has excellent public speaking skills, the way she dresses is fabulous and she has exceptional knowledge about animals," she said.

Miss Whitton is in Year 10.

"I went to the Ekka with my school last year and helped out with the judging," she said.

"I must have done a good job I guess."

Miss Whitton said she was only a little bit nervous.

"I'm looking forward to it," she said.

"The nerves are starting to calm and Emma will be there to help me."
