Celebrating our rural heritage

THE countdown is now well under way to the Coffs Coast's biggest celebration of our rural heritage.

The Coffs Harbour Show is being staged from May 16 to 18, and with this year marking 100 years since it was first held, every effort is being made to make it a truly memorable event.

For one young woman it will be that and a whole lot more.

In keeping with tradition, the winner of the Miss Showgirl title will be the ambassador for our agricultural event of the year.

If you are between the ages of 18 and under 25 (as at May 1, 2014), a permanent resident of Australia and reside within Coffs Harbour and district you are eligible to enter.

But be quick, judging is about to take place and winners will be announced during the Show's grand parade.

For the 10-17 year olds, Junior Showgirl judged on presentation and personality is also a wonderful opportunity to be part of the show.

All entrants in the competition will receive a free pass to the show and will participate in the Grand Parade.

All Showgirl entrants (senior and junior) have the opportunity to help the committee during the show presenting ribbons and trophies, greeting guests, handing out information and other related "ambassadorial" duties.

Judging takes place on May 12 and girls need to be available on May 14 from 5pm to 7pm as well as show days.

The showgirl winner goes on to attend zone and state finals judging.
