Local youth with an interest in Beaudesert’s rural community are being encouraged to go for the 2022 Beaudesert Showgirl, Rural Ambassador and Junior Show Ambassador titles.
Entries close 2 July and winners will join the 2021 ambassadors as the face of the 2022 Beaudesert Show from 2 to 3 September – the rescheduled 125th show anniversary.
Rural Ambassador entries are open to people aged 20 to 30 and Junior Show Ambassador entries are open to people aged 12 to 17 (both categories are open to males and females).
Beaudesert Showgirl entries are open to women aged 18 to 28 and, after a rule change was accepted by the board of Queensland Agricultural Shows, married women and women with children can now enter.
Committee member Caitlyn Hester said the competition aimed to recognise and promote the next generation’s role in the rural workforce and the wider community.
“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,” she said.
“Finalists are also asked to demonstrate knowledge of their local community and current affairs.”
Presentations will be held on July 30.

Show Ambassadors Shine
Beaudesert’s local show ambassadors are eyeing off the State Titles after winning the South East Sub Chamber Titles for the second year.
Anna Ferguson (Showgirl) and Sarah MacGinley (Rural Ambassador) were recently crowned South East Sub Chamber Showgirl and Rural Ambassador.
They now have their sights set on competing for the title of Queensland Country Life Miss Showgirl and the Queensland Rural Ambassador Awards at the Ekka in August.
Anna and Sarah will be up against 10 other Sub Chamber winners who will undergo a judging and public speaking process before attending a gala dinner for the position.
