Are you sash worthy?
BACK in the day it was all about baking the perfect scone, riding horses and pickling vegies. Fast forward to 2016 and the Coffs Harbour Miss Showgirl is a modern competition attracting local entrants from all walks of life.
“We are looking for a vital young woman to be the ambassador for Coffs Harbour,” Mel Crossland, showgirl co-ordinator said.
“You will be representing the Coffs Coast at zone level. And while this means you will be expected to have some agricultural knowledge, or interest in learning about the agricultural diversity of our local area - hint hint blueberries and bananas, you are not expected to have come from a farming background.”
If you can answer questions along the lines of “Who is the mayor of Coffs Harbour?” “What yellow fruit is Coffs Harbour known for?” and “What can you offer the show society if you are the winner?” you are encouraged to throw your hat into the show ring and enter the Miss Showgirl competition.
“This is a competition where entrants learn life skills and of course, have a lot of fun. We will coach you on the agricultural and general knowledge of our region as well as public speaking and grooming. It is such a rewarding experience and as bonus, will look impressive on your resume. ”
Entrants in this year’s Coffs Harbour Miss Showgirl will have their hair and make-up professionally done and wear supplied jewellery and clothes for the cocktail “mocktail” event prior to the show as well as for the grand parade on Saturday, April 23 where it will be announced who gets to wear the winner’s sash.
“We are looking for someone who can wear the sash proudly for the next 12 months. She will attend local events as Miss Showgirl and will represent Coffs Harbour right here on home turf when the zone competition comes to the Coffs Coast next year.”
