Call is out for Gin Gin Show entrants
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.
