Do you know an outstanding young woman who could become Guyra’s next Showgirl?

Or are you yourself a young woman aged between 18 and 24 (under 25 at May 1 2019), who would be proud to represent Guyra, and wants to be part of the show movement?

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to represent your town, and to go further on to more judging competitions,” Guyra Show Society vice-president Rita Williams said.

“It gives you a lot of confidence.”


The 2019 Showgirl’s duties would include opening the Show, public speaking, and presenting prizes for winners in agricultural events.

Forms are available at The GALA Centre, 136 Bradley Street; entries close on Friday, November 16.

All entrants will be asked to participate in next year’s show, and will receive a sash and a gift at the show’s official opening on Friday, February 22, 2019.

Three independent judges will visit Guyra in December to mark contestants on their rural knowledge, general knowledge, presentation and speech, personality, confidence, ambition, and life goals.

The successful applicant must demonstrate knowledge of their local community and current affairs, and their involvement in and experience of rural affairs.

The Showgirl competition is organized by the Agricultural Societies Council of NSW.

The winner from Guyra goes onto the Zone Finals at Narrabri in February.

From there, two winners are chosen to go to the Sydney Royal Easter Show, and enter the Land Showgirl Competition, which aims to find a young female Ambassador for rural NSW and the agricultural show movement.
