Cloncurry and District Show have sashed a new showgirl to represent their region at sub-chamber.
Savannah McDonald, 21, successfully took out Cloncurry's Miss Showgirl competition last weekend and will go on to compete against other Central and North Western showgirls for a chance to be Queensland Country Life's Miss Showgirl.
Ms McDonald said she felt privileged to be Cloncurry's Miss Showgirl.
"I know that Cloncurry takes great pride in its Showgirls and the role that they play in promoting the town and the show, and I know after Mikaela I have big shoes to fill," she said.
"The other entrants Sarah Tully and Rachel Lovett are also fantastic girls and would have both made incredible Showgirls, so I am really honoured to have been chosen."
Recently moving to Cloncurry for a position as a teacher at Cloncurry State School, Ms McDonald wanted to get involved in the local community, so she entered in the Miss Showgirl competition.
"It seemed like a really fantastic way for me to get involved in the community, it's events and to meet some new people," she said.
"I have always been told how fantastic rural communities are if you get involved, so I thought why not?"
Cloncurry Showgirl competition coordinator Lesley Wall said Savannah stood out with her approach to people and willing to be involved in any activities.
"The three entrants were judged at local events including a wine and cheese introduction night, a pub crawl, judging and sashing of Cloncurry Race's fashions on the field. A formal process was also conducted including an interview and discussion at the Cattleman's Dinner," Ms Wall said.
"The three candidates were of very high standard. They all represented the show committee and the Cloncurry community very admirably and it was very hard to judge.
"We were lucky to have three women who were so keen to be involved."
As Cloncurry's Miss Showgirl, Ms McDonald said she was looking forward to learning and experiencing new things.
"I'm really looking forward to learning more about the Cloncurry community and it's surrounds, and learning more about the people who live here."
Ms McDonald said she looks forward to meeting the other showgirls from Longreach and Blackall when they compete at sub-chamber for a chance to be crowned Queensland Country Life's Miss Showgirl at the Ekka in August.
