The Gresford District Agricultural Society has a proud history in The Land Showgirl competition, with local women proudly representing our community at both the Zone and State Finals. The competition recognises local women who participate in the show and champion the region, have a passion for agriculture and love getting involved. 

Showgirls get to participate in the show and see the event from behind the scenes like no one else. Everything from sashing horses in the show ring to judging the pet parade it is a hands-on job! 

Gresford holds a senior showgirl competition every second year, and runs a Junior showgirl competition on alternate years.

In 2020 we are looking for our next junior showgirl. Entrants must be a resident of Dungog Shire and be 12-16 years old. 

Judging will be held on Thursday March 12, 2020 in Gresford, with the showgirls to be presented at the Art Show Opening that evening, where the winner will be announced. All showgirls are expected to attend and help out at the show, with all the girls participating in our Grand Parade. 

The winner will then represent the community at the Zone Final in 2021. 

If you would like to know more about entering, please contact our Showgirl Coordinator Penny Evans on 0437604206 or
