Childers Show: 2016 Isis District P.A & I So­ci­ety Miss Show­girl Quest set to shine in Childers

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page - By JODIE DIXON

THE Childers Miss Show­girl Quest has a short his­tory dat­ing back to 2013 and in­ter­est lev­els have ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions each year.

This year marks 100 years for the Childers Show. The show will again host many great events in­clud­ing the 2016 Isis District PA & I So­ci­ety Quest.

Childers Miss Show­girl com­pe­ti­tion co-or­di­na­tor Vader-Ann Weg­ner said this year marks a mas­sive mile­stone for the show and its or­gan­is­ers.

“I en­cour­age ev­ery young lady around the re­gion to en­ter,” Ms Weg­ner said.

“It is a great op­por­tu­nity to get in­volved in the show and to be­come more in­volved in the com­mu­nity.

“You must have some knowl­edge about your lo­cal com­mu­nity,” she said.

The com­pe­ti­tion aims to find a young fe­male Am­bas­sador (Ju­nior 14-17, se­nior 18-28) to rep­re­sent their lo­cal show and the agri­cul­tural show move­ment.

“The Show­girl Com­pe­ti­tion is def­i­nitely not a beauty pageant,” Ms Weg­ner said.

En­trants must have a gen­uine in­ter­est in, and knowl­edge of their lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Con­tes­tants are judged on per­son­al­ity, con­fi­dence, am­bi­tion and life goals, gen­eral knowl­edge, ru­ral knowl­edge, pre­sen­ta­tion and speech.

The quest fi­nal­ists must also demon­strate knowl­edge of cur­rent af­fairs.

“Be­ing a Show­girl re­quires be­ing ac­tively in­volved in the lo­cal show – pre­sent­ing prizes, sash­ing live­stock, gen­er­ally be­ing in the pub­lic eye, min­gling with the crowd and help get­ting po­ten­tial en­trants for the fol­low­ing year’s com­pe­ti­tion,” Ms Weg­ner said.

The show will be cel­e­brat­ing a mile­stone in Childers’ grow­ing his­tory.

To be part of the fab­u­lous event and to sup­port your lo­cal com­mu­nity con­tact Ms Weg­ner at vader_ann28@hot­mail.com.
