Showgirls earn their sashes
SIXTEEN young women aged 10 to 17 competed for the Gayndah Junior Miss Showgirl titles.
Judge Rob Radel said they had taken pride in their town, their show, and themselves.
“Each and every one of these young ladies has done a top job,” Mr Radel said.
“(In the 14 to 17 years section) the top three girls when we allocated points were all on equal points.
“That’s how close it was.”
Georgia Laidler I really enjoyed (Miss Showgirl) and I will probably do it again next year.
