High Tea ac­tiv­i­ties to sig­nal first mile­stone of 106th Gin Gin event

Isis Town and Country - - News -

GIN GIN Show So­ci­ety will ea­gerly reach the first mile­stone on the road to this year’s an­nual show.

Be­tween now and the 106th Show on May 30 and 31, there are sev­eral ma­jor events.

The first of those is this week­end when po­ten­tial Miss Show­girls and Ru­ral Am­bas­sadors will have their first chance to im­press at the High Tea.

Held from noon on Satur­day, the High Tea acts as both an of­fi­cial in­tro­duc­tion to en­trants as well as a fundrais­ing op­por­tu­nity.

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 the agri­cul­tural show move­ment.

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

Mean­while lo­cal schools are do­ing their best to grow mon­ster pump­kins for the show.

A new ad­di­tion to this year’s an­nual event, the gi­ant pump­kin-grow­ing com­pe­ti­tion has at­tracted plenty of in­ter­est from sev­eral schools across the re­gion.

Most pro­grams are avail­able on the web­site.
