Call is out for Gin Gin Show en­trants

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

THE first of­fi­cial event in the lead-up to the Gin Gin Show is near­ing and or­gan­is­ers have put the call out for more nom­i­na­tions.

So far there are two en­trants in each of the ru­ral am­bas­sador and Miss Show­girl com­pe­ti­tions.

The High Tea is set to be held on March 14 at noon, and acts as an of­fi­cial in­tro­duc­tion to en­trants as well as a fundrais­ing op­por­tu­nity.

At this stage eight stall hold­ers will set up on the day.

Show com­mit­tee mem­ber Chloe Sch­midt said prepa­ra­tions for the event were com­ing along nicely.

“We’re get­ting the de­cos ready to go and ev­ery­thing’s look­ing good,” she said.

The Miss Show­girl role is aimed at en­cour­ag­ing and pro­mot­ing the show move­ment to the re­gion’s youth.

For the win­ner, it will mean height­ened in­volve­ment with the lo­cal show, prize pre­sen­ta­tion, be­ing the public face of the show and pro­mot­ing next year’s com­pe­ti­tion.

Gin Gin Show So­ci­ety web­site stressed the com­pe­ti­tion is judged on per­son­al­ity, lo­cal knowl­edge and abil­ity to rep­re­sent and pro­mote agri­cul­tural show move­ment.

Ru­ral am­bas­sadors aim to “high­light the im­por­tance of young peo­ple in ru­ral and re­gional Queens­land”.

The 106th Gin Gin Show will be held on May 30-31.
