Three girls vie for crown

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - Kather­ine Kokko­nen kather­ine.kokko­

SHOW­TIME is around the cor­ner and three Mun­dub­bera girls are in the run­ning to don the tiara.

Chantelle Wain, Jess Dob­son and Stephanie Ko­towski are vy­ing to be­come the town’s show­girl.

They will be put through an in­ter­view process with three judges on Fri­day af­ter­noon.

That night they will be pre­sented as nom­i­nees at Ban­quet in the Bur­nett and a win­ner and run­ner-up will be an­nounced dur­ing the evening’s cel­e­bra­tions.

Show­girl co-or­di­na­tor Gayle Pott has been in­volved in the com­pe­ti­tion for 15 years and en­cour­aged ev­ery­one to come out in sup­port of the show­girl com­peti­tors.

“It’s al­ways an en­joy­able night and it will be a scrump­tious meal with a two course ban­quet,” Ms Pott said. “Make up a ta­ble of friends, get yourself glammed up and come along.”

Ms Pott said the show­girl com­pe­ti­tion was not a beauty con­test, but was judged more on the girls’ per­son­al­ties and in­volve­ment in the com­mu­nity.

“The aim of the com­pe­ti­tion is to find a girl most suited to rep­re­sent the shows of our re­gion in Bris­bane at the Queens­land Coun­try Life Show­girl awards in Au­gust at the Ekka,” she said.

“Many lo­cal Mun­dub­bera girls have en­tered and shared in the show­girl ex­pe­ri­ence over the years.”

The show­girl awards first started in 1983 in Queens­land, with about 660 en­trants statewide, mak­ing it the largest com­pe­ti­tion of its type in the state.

The win­ning show­girl will go on to the Bur­nett Sub-cham­ber judg­ing, po­ten­tially tak­ing out the com­pe­ti­tion and head­ing to Bris­bane for state judg­ing.

Mun­dub­bera Show So­ci­ety has held a gala Show Ball over the years and changed it to a din­ner and cabaret for the last 10 years, in­cor­po­rat­ing the Show­girl Com­pe­ti­tion dur­ing the evening. This year, the din­ner will be held at the Mun­dub­bera Show Pavil­ion on Fri­day, April 4, with doors open­ing at 6.30pm. The night in­cludes din­ner, bar, dancing and raf­fles and tick­ets cost $38 a per­son.
