The Showgirl Competition aims to find a young woman to act as an ambassador for Rural NSW with her role involving official and informal duties representing the North Coast National A & I Society.
Contestants are judged on personality, confidence, ambition and life goals, rural knowledge, presentation, and speech. Finalists are also asked to demonstrate knowledge of their local community and current affairs, and apart from their potential ambassadorial qualities, contestants are also judged on their involvement in, and experience of rural affairs.
The North Coast National Showgirl Competition provides an opportunity for young women to become involved in their local communities as rural ambassadors and to encourage and promote their local Agricultural Show. Entrants are selected for their knowledge, presentation, passion for the agricultural show movement and their community. The competition is no beauty contest, nor is it a intelligence test. It is an award presented to young women who raise the profile of Agricultural Shows.
The award provides an opportunity to excel in leadership, community involvement, key management and confidence. The winner will go on to represent the North Coast National at Zone where they have the opportunity to compete against other Zone 1 finalists, with two winners going on to compete at the Royal Sydney Show.
Judging for the Showgirl & Miss Teen Showgirl will be held during the day on the Saturday prior to the Show from 9am, with the Presentation evening commencing at 6pm.
