This year marks the 58th annual Cunnamulla Show, with eight lovely show girl entrants. Since early this year the entrants have been carrying out a variety of fundraising events, promoting the show and selling tickets to the Cunnamulla Show ball, which was held on the 19th of May.Thank you to Skytrans and Grand Mercure Apartments Twin Waters for being the major sponsors of our Show Girl Awards.
The Miss Showgirl Awards had eight final contestants this year: Olivia Taylor, Grace Patterson, Tarna Rogers, Katrina Osborne, Jana Burey, Danielle Clow, Samantha Darcy & Tina Morris.
The girls participated in a series of community events including ‘Fashions of the Field’ at our local ANZAC day races, cake stalls, selling tickets for raffles and the Cunnamulla Show Ball, meet and greet evening dinner, individual interviews, and various public speaking events. At each event our four judges; Melissa Bryan, Amy McKenzie, Josephine Clark and Cr Mayor Lindsay Godfrey, were scoring the girls on their personality, local knowledge, deportment, public speaking abilities.
The judges stated that this year’s entrants were quiet knowledgeable in their local show and community surroundings and had quite a task in picking a winner, however after much deliberation, awards went to –
Olivia Taylor 2012 Miss Showgirl Personality
Katrina Osborne 2012 Miss Charity (who raised $1628)
Katrina Osborn 2012 Miss Show Girl Runner-up
Danielle Clow 2012 Miss Show Girl Awards Winner
Danielle Clow is 19 year old Hassad Jillaroo, who works on a local property approximately 70kms out of Cunnamulla. Danielle moved here from near Orange NSW. Danielle states that her experience as a show girl entrant was a great way to meet other young ladies in the community and also to get to know the community better.
Danielle will now compete at the South West Regional Miss Show Girl Awards on the 23rd June in Chinchillia.
On behalf of our 2012 Miss Show Girl winner Danielle Clow and the Cunnamulla and District Show Society, I would like to thank Skytrans for the their wonderful major prize donation for this years’ Miss Show girl winner. Without generous donations from the likes of Skytrans and Grand Mecure Apartments, as well as the support and donation from local Business houses, these Awards would not be possible.
