SHOW TURNS 100
THE grace and elegance of the 2016 Childers Miss Showgirl Quest was a great success for organisers, an outstanding event on the show calendar every year.
Event co-ordinator Vader-Ann Wegner, fine-tuned her juggling act of university and the quest from her base and head quarters on the Sunshine Coast.
Ms Wegner said all entrants should be proud.
A tradition since 1982, Miss Showgirl provides young women with the opportunity to participate and contribute to their local show, community and state.
Ms Wegner said the Miss Showgirl quest sought someone to proudly represent the show for the next 12 months.
“Her role is to encourage and promote the show movement to the youth of the community,” Ms Wegner said.
“She is selected for her knowledge, presentation and passion for the show movement and her community,
“I hope this is one journey the entrants will remember forever.”
For the young ladies, the journey will take them out of their comfort zone, help them grow, meet new people and expand their knowledge.
The 2015 Miss Showgirl, Zepplyn Wegner, said there was no other experience like the showgirl competition.
“The Miss Showgirl experience is a 12 month commitment: it will keep you on your toes with a hectic schedule of social commitments and official duties in and around Childers,” she said.
Her best experiences were the opportunity to be involved in the Isis district show society, meeting new people, having a voice for younger people and being a role model.
SHOW WINNERS: Junior Miss Showgirl Emma Budgen, Mayor Jack Dempsey and Senior Miss Showgirl Sarah Perry.
SHOW GIRLS: Emma Budgen, Sarah Perry, Peter Warren, Madison Zwister and Rachael Taplin.
