Show­girl en­trants’ pas­sion for show

Isis Town and Country - - CHILDERS SHOW 2014 -

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.
