Michelle is our Show Girl
Michelle Barnes has been announced as the 2018 Finley Show Girl.
Finley Show Society began show week with show girl judging that included interviews and a ‘meet and greet’ over breakfast with judges Lyndall Horne, Troy Marshall and Matt Peterson at the Country Club Hotel.
The contestants - Michelle Barnes, Maddie Dundon and Rhianna Jamieson - were interviewed by show girl coordinator and 2017 Finley Show Girl Maicie Close before the judges, committee members and family and friends during an afternoon tea held at the Bob Close Pavilion.
Ms Close spoke about her experience as 2017 Show Girl and her journey to the zone and state finals. She encouraged young ladies to enter the competition, saying it is not a beauty pageant but a great opportunity and experience not to be missed.
Michelle Barnes was announced the 2018 Finley Show Girl, with Rhianna Jamieson the runner-up.
The contestants will all attend the show on Sunday where they will be judging the Junior Show Girl and assisting with ribbon presentations
Also announced was 2018 Show Personality Aimee Snowden. Aimee, who is a 2016 RAS Rural Achiever, is an ambassador of the show movement and judges believed she was the ideal choice for Show Personality.
