MISS Maleny Show Personality winner, 20-year-old Chloe Lanham, will be heading to the Brisbane Ekka in early August to represent our region in the state finals of the Queensland Country Life Showgirl Awards.
Chloe, who lives on her family’s farm at Conondale, recently won the Near North Coast Sub Chamber Showgirl and Rural Ambassador finals hosted by the Gympie Show Society, paving the way for her to become a state finalist representing both the region and the Maleny Show Society.
Chloe said the sub chamber covered 15 regions in an area from the Fraser Coast to Redcliffe and she was absolutely honoured and excited to be flying the flag for the region.
“I was really pleased to have won our regional finals but also quite surprised as the other entrants would have all been very worthy winners,” Chloe said.
“I’m thrilled that Maleny finally got into the state finals again after a ten-year break and I’m honoured but also a bit nervous to be representing our region.”
With 11 sub chambers from across Queensland represented at the finals, Chloe said she was looking forward to meeting the other girls in person.
She said the competition was a great way for young women to get involved in their local agricultural shows and a wonderful opportunity to build their leadership and confidence skills while also showcasing their region.
GC&M News is looking forward to following up with Chloe in August about her experience at the state finals.
