Central and North Burnett Times - - FRONT PAGE -

SWAP­PING her scrubs for a sash and some styling, Al­lie Em­mer­ton is over­joyed to be the face of Gayn­dah as 2018’s Miss Show­girl.

The 21-year-old vet­eri­nary nurs­ing stu­dent was awarded the ti­tle at Gayn­dah Show So­ci­ety’s high tea event on Satur­day.

“I seem to be good at over­dress­ing so I’m happy there’s an oc­ca­sion where I’m en­cour­aged to do so,” she said.

Miss Em­mer­ton pushed her ap­pre­hen­sion aside af­ter the 104th An­nual Gayn­dah Show was set to go ahead without a show­girl due to lack of en­trants.

“I re­alise now that there was noth­ing to be ner­vous about. It’s a con­fi­dence builder and I look for­ward to meet­ing lots of peo­ple out­side my cir­cle,” she said.

Awarded run­ner-up, Chloe Blee also came for­ward in a show of sup­port for Gayn­dah’s well-loved Show­girl tra­di­tion.

“Both girls were re­ally ca­pa­ble of the ti­tle so I was ex­cited when I heard from them,” Show­girl co-or­di­na­tor Stacey Dun­can said.

The 14-17 years Show­girl was awarded to Made­lyn Scan­lan with Ge­or­gia Lai­dler as run­ner-up.

Shelby Rowles was ti­tled Ju­nior Show­girl with Sab­rina Wa­ger a close sec­ond.

The Ru­ral Am­bas­sador will be awarded on April 14.
