The Beaudesert Show Society Showgirl committee are on the lookout for the Beaudesert Show Society’s next ambassadors for the 2023 Beaudesert Show.

Show Ambassador Coordinator, Tim Andrews said the society were looking for a Beaudesert Showgirl, a Beaudesert Junior Show Ambassador and a Beaudesert Rural Ambassador. The details are:

1. Beaudesert Showgirl –  female aged from 18 to 28 years(can be married or have children)

2. Beaudesert Junior Show Ambassador – 12–17 years – male or female

3. Beaudesert Rural Ambassador – 20 – 30 years – Male or Female

Ages inclusive as at 1st August 2023.

Mr Andrews said these contests aim to recognise and promote the key role the next generation will play in the rural workforce and agricultural show movements, whilst recognising their contributions in sustaining rural and regional communities.

“The Showgirl competition is certainly not a beauty pageant, the women are judged on personality, confidence, ambition and life goals, general knowledge, show knowledge, rural knowledge, presentation and speech. Finalists are also asked to demonstrate knowledge of their local community and current affairs. Further it is exciting that married women, as well as women with children, can enter the Showgirl Competition after a rule change was accepted by the board of Queensland Ag Shows,” he said.

He said the winner of these competitions would be the face of the 2023 Beaudesert Show to be held on 8 & 9 September. Entries will close on July 1.

2022 Beaudesert Showgirl and the recently sashed Runner-up South East Region Showgirl, Courtney Teese said the showgirl experience for her was a once in a lifetime opportunity.

“The opportunity to be involved in the local community and gain an understanding and insight into the agricultural shows industry has been an amazing experience. I have had the pleasure of meeting, networking, and working with an array of people from Beaudesert and the Scenic Rim which is something I wouldn’t have had the chance to do on my own. To be honest, I suggest anyone aged 18-28 in the area should give it a go regardless of your background. You don’t need to live or work on a farm to be a part of this!” she said.

2022 Rural Ambassador, Jess Jurd said it’s a great opportunity to get involved throughout our community and represent it with pride. Over my year of participating I have had the privilege of meeting amazing people, grown in confidence, made friends and made memories along the way.

Duties for the Beaudesert Showgirl and Rural Ambassador include among other duties:

  • Being available to attend the show both Friday and Saturday,
  • Presenting ribbons/trophies in different sections,
  • Attending the Opening of the Beaudesert Show
  • Attending the Grand Parade, and
  • attending a number of other community events throughout the year.

The role of Beaudesert Junior Show Ambassador will include attending the Show on both Friday and Saturday and attending the Opening of the Beaudesert Show and the Grand Parade, along with supporting our Showgirl & Rural Ambassador at a number of community events throughout the district.

The winners of the Beaudesert Showgirl and Rural Ambassador will also be invited to attend the South East QLD sub-chamber finals in April 2024.  From this they have the opportunity to represent the region at the State Finals held at the 2024 EKKA.

The presentation of Beaudesert Showgirl, Beaudesert Junior Show Ambassador and Beaudesert Rural Ambassador will be held on Saturday July 29.
