The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl Competition encourages the participation and subsequent awareness of rural women’s contribution and involvement in both local communities and rural NSW as a whole. It is not a beauty pageant.
The objective of the Showgirl competition at the Berry Show is to find a young woman to act as an ambassador for the Berry Show Society at the Zone and State finals. Each entrant will be a special guest at the 2017 Berry Show and will perform duties such as presenting prizes to wood chopping finalists, sashing livestock, the pet competition, horse events, speaking with media and generally being in the public eye.
Each entrant must be sponsored by a business, organisation or club and entrants must live in the areas of Berry, Kangaroo Valley, Gerringong, Bomaderry or Shoalhaven Heads. The competition is open to any women aged between 18 – 25 years.
For further information on entering, please contact Therese on 0403 285 923 or Sharon on 0428 616 462.

Our 2015 Showgirl, Tessa McMahon has said this about her Showgirl experience.
“My experience of the showgirl competition has been, at risk of sounding dramatic, life changing.
The showgirl competition values knowledge, confidence and leadership in young women. Not only does the competition value these things, it encourages these things. Being a part of the competition has enriched so many different parts of my life and I can happily say that I have become more confident in the year that has followed the competition. I would encourage any young lady to take this opportunity as it is not one that you will regret!”
