Showgirls vie for title
VADER-ANN Wegner is a girl who loves her town and loves the opportunity to represent her community.
As winner of the 2014 Childers Show junior Miss Showgirl Vader has become an integral part of her local community, using her role well to help others and get to know those in her area that much better.
Vader said being part of the show and the showgirl competition had been a positive experience.
“I have gotten to know some wonderful people in my community through the show that I might not have otherwise and overall it has been a very positive opportunity,” she said.
“The showgirls continue to play an important part of the show and fundraising efforts after the event and we are lucky to be a part of a wealth of wonderful events including an International Women’s Day breakfast, fundraising raffles at the Isis Club, hosting afternoon teas and other dinners.”
Both juniors and seniors are well represented this year.
Vader is now showcasing her experience as this year’s showgirl co-ordinator.
While their skills and strengths were initially shown at a showgirl dinner, the girls will also visit the sashed events at the show and be judged following an interview process.
“These girls are representing their local show so it is important they carry themselves well and are confident speaking in public – it is encouraging to have good agricultural knowledge but they clearly must still enjoy what they do,” Vader said.
