Miss Show Girl thrilled with win
THE South Burnett Show Society sub-chamber judging was held in Goomeri last Saturday night, with results that crowned a young Nanango lady Miss Show Girl and gave her the opportunity to represent the region at the Brisbane Ekka Royal Queensland Show in August.
Tamara Birrer, who was earlier this year crowned Miss Nanango, took first prize for the region at the sub-chamber judging and is set to represent the South Burnett Show Society as Miss Show Girl at the Royal Queensland Show from August 9-12.
Ms Birrer said she was proud to be the face of the region.
"I can't wait to represent the local show society at such a big agricultural show," she said.
"I think it will be a great opportunity to build more confidence, make more friends and meet more people within the industry who want to be a part of the continuation of rural communities and show societies."
Ms Birrer said the competition from the other girls was tough.
"We're judged on personality, presence, ability to speak and also on our knowledge of the region and our opinions on world politics," Ms Birrer said.
"The other girls were great. Even the judges said picking Miss Show Girl was a tough decision for them."
Miss Show Girl Nanango said previous involvement in local shows was also taken into consideration by the judges.
"I think it helped I had experience with showing cattle at local and regional shows," Ms Birrer said.
"I was a beef steward for a couple of years and my family has been a part of local shows for years, so I've been around it all my life."
The other regional judging results included Amy Wicks winning Young Ambassador.
She will also represent the South Burnett in Brisbane.
