Showgirl a country girl
A TRUE country girl won the heart of the Mundubbera Miss Showgirl competition judges.
In a tight contest, Chantelle Wain was chosen as Miss Showgirl with Stephanie Kotowski awarded runner-up and Jess Dobson was Miss Personality.
Ms Wain, 20, was surprised and proud to win the sash and hoped to use the position as a platform to promote fresh produce and health eating.
Raised in Mundubbera and part-owner of a butcher shop, Ms Wain understands life on the land.
“I know the struggles that farmers go through from the day they plant the seed to the day that a mum is cutting it up on the plate,” she said.
“This has given my name a bit of a boost and it has given me more motivation to put my goals into action, such as getting stalls up and running about the importance of fresh food.”
Ms Wain will take on her duties at the Mundubbera Show on May 9 and 10.
The duties will include assisting with events, handing out prizes and running good old fashioned games like tug-of-war.
Showgirl co-ordinator Gayle Pott was happy 130 people attended the Banquet in the Burnett to have a good time and support the girls.
“I’m very proud of all three girls and the judges had a hard job,” she said.
“This is a credit to them all. There was a great crowd with a great atmosphere and everyone was there to have a good time.”
Ms Pott said the competition would not have been able to go ahead without the strong support of the community and businesses.
“So many people help to make the night what it is; there is the setting-up, organising and then the cleaning up,” she said.
