Showgirl entrants’ passion for show
THE Childers Miss Showgirl competition is on again this year and is proudly becoming one of the region’s greatest show traditions.
According to previous winner Jess Robinson, 2014 has some very promising and enthusiastic girls willing to take the brave leap and compete for the title.
“We currently have five juniors and one senior showgirl who are already busy selling raffle tickets, working through their Miss Showgirl challenges and studying some local and state knowledge about agricultural shows in Queensland in the hope of becoming the voice of the youth in our local community and the face of the Childers Show,” she said.
A panel of three judges will have the opportunity to spend time with the showgirls at their afternoon tea, the Miss Showgirl dinner and during the Childers Show on Sunday, May 25.
“The winner is chosen based on criteria of presentation, general knowledge and passion for the show movement in Queensland,” Ms Robinson said.
“She will then represent our community at the Central Queensland Sub-Chamber Miss Showgirl finals in July right here in Childers before hopefully progressing through to the state finals at the Brisbane Ekka in August.
“This event is proving to be a great success for our small show and our community, and we are very excited to see where this year’s entrants will take us.”
Childers Show Society would like to thank Childers Pharmacy and Stephen Bennett MP for their major sponsorship of the Miss Showgirl Event.
