Childers hosts Miss Show­girl event

Isis Town and Country - - FRONT PAGE -

A 19-YEAR-OLD Bach­e­lor of Laws stu­dent Emma Crozier was cho­sen as the Cen­tral Queens­land Sub Cham­ber’s re­gional win­ner of the Miss Show­girl com­pe­ti­tion judged in Childers on Satur­day night.

The event at­tracted 60 guests with sup­port­ers from as far afield as Mackay at­tend­ing the re­gional judg­ing to se­lect a Miss Show­girl and Ru­ral Am­bas­sador rep­re­sen­ta­tive to vie for the state ti­tle in Bris­bane next month.

For­mer state Miss Show­girl win­ner Jess Robin­son, a Childers teacher, or­gan­ised the event on be­half of the Childers and District PA & I So­ci­ety.

Ms Robin­son said the event not only show­cased talent for the re­gional fi­nal but had pro­vided the op­por­tu­nity to re­veal some of the great at­trac­tions in and around Childers to a new au­di­ence.

“I think people were gen­uinely ex­cited by what they saw when we took all fi­nal­ists, fam­i­lies and friends on a tour of the Childers area on Satur­day,” she said.

“Fly­ing High Bird Sanc­tu­ary, Snakes Dow­nun­der, Av­o­cado Acres, Paragon Theatre, Old Phar­macy and Vint­ner’s Se­cret were all on the tour itin­er­ary.

“The lo­cal ac­com­mo­da­tion was booked out and our guests en­joyed the evening judg­ing which was held in a mar­quee on the lawns of the Isis Club.”

Run­ner-up was 19-year-old law firm ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant Tif­fan Finn from Pioneer Val­ley.

A 21-year-old hair­dresser and sta­tion hand Sarah Wood­man was selected as the 2014 Re­gional Ru­ral Am­bas­sador win­ner.

Childers en­trant Han­nah Hutchin­son spoke of the need to en­sure sur­vival of lo­cal agri­cul­tural shows.

She said the con­test had pro­vided her with an op­por­tu­nity to mix with people who shared the same pas­sion for coun­try shows.

“I think this ex­pe­ri­ence has also pro­vided me with a lit­tle more con­fi­dence,” she said.

Both re­gional fi­nals win­ners will travel to Bris­bane to com­pete in the state fi­nals judged at the Ekka.
