The Nowra Show Society is pleased to announce Chloe Bishop as 2019 Nowra Showgirl and Keeley Warren as the 2019 Runner-Up.
Judging for the 2019 Competition occurred on 24th November 2018 and culminated in the Nowra Showgirl Presentation Dinner. This event was attended by over 110 members of the local community and acknowledged the achievements of all five Showgirl entrants as well as highlighting the importance of the agricultural show movement.
Although final judging for the competition has been completed, the Showgirl entrants were not absent from the 2019 Nowra Show. The role of Showgirl means being involved in all aspects of your local Show, as entrants are afforded a behind-the-scenes experience which connects them directly with both exhibitors and patrons. Showgirls will be busy across the two days of the Show presenting prizes, sashing livestock, speaking with media and attending official Show functions as ambassadors for the Nowra Show Society.
A brief history…
The Nowra Showgirl competition was first held in 1963 and since then the Nowra Show Society, through this Competition, has helped many young women gain self-confidence and valuable life skills and to become more connected with their local community.
The Showgirl Competition is not a beauty pageant but aims to find a young female ambassador for rural NSW. Over 500 young women enter the Competition annually throughout NSW and are judged on their interest and knowledge about rural Australia, as well as confidence, ambition and life goals, general knowledge, presentation and speech. Candidates are also asked to demonstrate knowledge of their local community, national and political issues that impact on Australians.
The young woman chosen as The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl will act as an ambassador for rural and regional NSW. Her role will involve many official and informal duties, both at the Sydney Royal Easter Show, NSW Shows and during her travels interstate and overseas.
Prizes for 2020 State winners include:
