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.
