Take the test, who’s best?

TAKING part in a meat pie eating competition is like a virtual Australian citizenship test.

If you haven't done it you're only two thirds the Aussie you thought you were.

But, never fear, you can make that 100% this Sunday at Amy Freeman's sausage sizzle and pie-eating competition.

The Jacaranda Queen candidate is holding a meaty fundraiser for the Jacaranda Festival, outside Man to Man at Grafton Shoppingworld.

The outdoorsy Grafton gal said she hoped her event would grab the attention of locals willing to donate a few dollars to help the festival.

"The fundraising side of things has been really successful so far and I've still got two more events coming up, not including Sunday," Miss Freeman said.

Henwood's Hot Bread Shop will supply the pies for the competition and Miss Freeman challenged all to drop by and see how quick they can wolf down an Aussie icon.

Prizes will be up for grabs for the fastest contestant, as well as full bragging rights.

Miss Freeman will be set up from 9am-1pm on Sunday.
