THE Maleny Show Society celebrated eleven young, local ladies at this years Personality competition on Saturday afternoon at Tranquil Park, Maleny.
The event began with each entrant being interviewed by a panel of three judges; Elise Walton, Wayne Parcel and Paulette Steele.
The girls then made their way to Tranquil Park where they were introduced to the nearly 50 guests who attended the event.
Guests and entrants were invited to enjoy an afternoon of High Tea where they were expected to network and develop their public speaking skills.
The judges had some very hard decisions to make, with all commenting on how close the results were.
Results were as follows; Show Girl Winner; Chloe Lanham, Show Girl Runner Up; Jaimee Lee Sweeting. Junior Show Girl Winner; Mackenzie Green, Junior Show Girl Runner Up; Maddison Nolan. Junior Rural Ambassador Winner; Brooke Wild, Junior Rural Ambassador Runner Up; Alicia Ferriday.
Maleny Show Personality Coordinator, Felicity Heading expressed her gratitude to all the entrants for participating in the 2022 competition.
“It is quite daunting to nominate for a competition you may not know too much about, but also nominating and not knowing anyone else who is participating,” she said. “So I believe you are all very brave, very beautiful and very unique”.
This year a workshop element was introduced to the competition which brought great positive discussion among the entrants and parents.
This initiative was met with very positive feedback so Felicity endeavours to continue the initiative next year.
