Rural ambassador and showgirls announced at regionals
THE countdown is over, our rural ambassadors and miss showgirls have gone through judging and questioning to discover the regional winners.
On Saturday night, the representatives from the West Moreton and Brisbane Valley show societies were put in the spotlight in front for the regional final.
The regional miss showgirl title went to Ipswich Show Society’s Chloe Maxwell, with Lowood Show Society’s Katie Whitfield claiming runner-up.
“I did Lowood Show Society proud on the night and I am honoured to be named West Moreton Brisbane Valley Miss Showgirl runner-up,” Katie said.
“I wear my sash with pride and encourage others to step outside their comfort zones to discover their abilities just like I did.
“I hope that people, especially our next generation, can understand the importance the show has in our community.
Katie said becoming runner-up was an incredible achievement.
“All the girls that took part in representing their local community were deserving of the award because it takes courage to step up and give it a go,” Katie said.
Boonah Show Society rural ambassador Tobias Worley won the regional award, with Toogoolawah rural ambassador Megan Vetter named runner-up.
“I was pretty happy with the result,” Megan said.
“I’m pleased to have done Toogoolawah proud and wish Tobias all the best at the Ekka.”
