region’s top honour
Taliah shows poise
Tough judging for
TALIAH Faint’s ambition in life is not limited as she believes you should seek every opportunity that comes your way.
On Saturday night she drew on her public speaking experience from her school days to calm the nerves for her Biggenden Miss Showgirl judging.
The 20-year-old has lived in Biggenden all her life and is the face behind the deli and cafe at Biggenden Foodworks where she is supervisor.
“Winning Miss Showgirl will be a great experience and will be an opportunity to become more involved in the community and the show movement.
“Instead of being a spectator I will be in there promoting my community,” she said.
With runner-up Dallarnil State School teacher Samantha Ward, they faced the judges before being introduced to the packed show hall.
Judge Stacey Wilson said the decision was difficult.
“They are both warm, intelligent, lovely girls,” she said.
Miss Showgirl 2013 Krystal Wilson and co-ordinator Nicole Gibbs sashed and made presentations thanks to the generosity of sponsors to both Taliah and Samantha.
THE WINNER IS! Biggenden Miss Showgirl 2014 runner-up Samantha Ward, winner Taliah Faint, Miss Showgirl 2013 Krystal Wilson and Biggenden Rural Ambassador Sheree Beddows.
