IT'S time to get revved up for the Warwick Show.

The Warwick Show and Rodeo Society is on the hunt for stewards.

Kate Anderson from the society said they were looking for locals to support the show and help out in areas they may be interested in.

"We really want to encourage a bunch of fresh faces to come along and put input into the show," she said.

"The show is good for the community and there are a lot of people out there who specialise in different fields who could really make a difference to the show."

This Sunday members of the Queensland Chamber of Agriculture Society will hold a seminar at the Warwick Showgrounds. The seminar is on from 9am until 3pm.

The seminar is free and is aimed at people who are interested in becoming involved with the Warwick Show.

"We will have guest speakers talking about next generation stewards and their roles," she said.

"The CEO of the QCAS will also be here to talk about bringing new events to Warwick.

"Other local show societies including Killarney and Clifton have also been invited to the seminar."

If you are interested in attending the seminar phone the show society on 4661 9060.
