The Showgirl Competition is an excellent way to become involved in your local community and the Kempsey Show Society. The purpose of the program is to better your skills such as public speaking, community involvement, event organisation, personal presentation etc. There are three age categories:
Senior: 18 years to 24 years (as of 1 May 2022).
Teen: 13 years to 17 years.
Junior: 8 years to 12 years.
The competition will be held prior to the show and the winners are announced on the Tuesday night of the 2021 Show. The competition includes an interview with a panel of local judges and a sit-down meal. It is a chance to get to know other like-minded people in your local community. The competition can open up so many pathways and opportunities such as attending the Zone 1 Finals, qualifying for Sydney Royal, assisting with the Kempsey Showgirl Ball etc. The event is what you make of it!
