“As this year’s 2017 Burdekin Miss Showgirl Representative, I am unbelievably honoured to be the voice for my generation in emphasising the major importance that our Annual Show plays in supporting this incredible country and what it holds very tightly to its heart. Even though the local farming and agricultural industries are facing heart-breaking issues, I believe there is always light at the end of the tunnel and if it wasn’t for what we have today, our local economy would not be where it is. As some of my roles are to gain more awareness of these issues, to extend the knowledge of this industry, to enhance the participation of the youth and to increase the community spirit throughout Queensland, it is my pleasure to be involved and to contribute all that I can. By retaining the Miss Showgirl Award tradition, I hope to gain not only more knowledge in the Agricultural Industry but also more knowledge in who I am personally. For example, leadership, community involvement, self-management and confidence and what an incredible experience it has been so far. I hope to be a role model for younger women and youth as a passionate member of our community and I look forward to the next 12 months.”
The 2017 Burdekin Miss Showgirl is Chelsea Sarkis.
