See the Lovely Showgirls at the Agricultural Show!

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at USC (AU) chapter.
Last year, 18 year old Taylor Pascoe won Miss Showgirl and she’s going for the title again at his year’s Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show!
Taylor said she volunteers for the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show every year.
“It’s such a good three days and it’s a lot of fun,” Taylor said.
“I really like raising awareness about the show as it’s such a unique thing that we have and is probably one of the best shows on the Sunshine Coast.”

She said there’s more to being Miss Showgirl than winning.
“Being a showgirl is exciting but scary because you are presented on the first night of the show in front of everyone and you have to make a speech, it’s kind of daunting having the whole show looking at you,” Taylor said.
One of this year’s Show Princess entrants 16 year old Chloe Francis said this is the first time she has ever entered.
“This is my first time applying for Miss Show Princess for the Agricultural Show and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous,” Chloe said.
“I applied not only to build my confidence but to build a better relationship between myself and the community.”

Chloe said running for Miss Show Princess is a way for her to grow as a person.
“Winning Miss Show Princess would mean so much to me,” she said.
“However if I wasn’t to win, people will have the ability to look at how I was before and how I am now and see the whole experience of working with the community and working alongside the rest of the Studio 21 girls and the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show Society has helped me become a better person.
“I want to be a great mentor or role model just as the previous show princess winners have.”
She said running for Miss Show Princess has already helped her future career.
“I’m currently studying beauty therapy and I’d like to one day create my own range beauty/skin care products,” Chloe said.
The history of Miss Showgirl dates back to its inception in 1983 and has been a successful event each year.

Miss Show Princess entrant Chloe Francis said other girls should definitely apply.
“You learn so much about yourself and is honestly an amazing experience,” she said.
“I say go for it!”
