The Maleny Show Dance brought a large crowd of enthusiasts on Saturday the 19th of May 2012 at the Maleny Showgrounds Pavilion where winners were crowned for Miss Show Girl, Junior Show Princess, Charity Person and Rural Ambassador.
This year the Show Society was privileged to have Mr Ian McConnel, the current State Rural Ambassador, Miss Libby Hufton and Miss Molly Hickey from the Queensland Chamber of Agricultural Show Societies to judge the entrants through the process of an interview and on-stage question. The judging was tough this year with an array of talent and skills shown by all the competitors.
Entrants for Charity Person included Kylie Wild sponsored by Ernie Faraday Home Butchering, Renee Jones sponsored by the Maleny RSL and Charlotte Mumford sponsored by the Maleny Pony Club. This category was won by Kylie Wild who raised a total of $6,001, and for all her efforts was awarded by the Maleny Show Society a $5,000 travel voucher. The three entrants for Charity Person raised a grand total of over $11,000, which will go back into the community through the Show Society.
Show Girl entrants included Charlotte Mumford sponsored by Maleny Pony Club, Melita Briggs sponsored by the Maleny Credit Union, Chloe Kopilovic sponsored by the Glasshouse Mountains LNP and Krystle Johnston who took out the title sponsored by Jondene AI Stud. All entrants within this category proved to be tough competition.
Junior Show Princess was won by Charlotte Goulter sponsored by the Maleny SES with Belinda Kay sponsored by Quota being named Runner-Up.
Felicity Grigor sponsored by the Maleny Rotary Club was named Rural Ambassador and along with Krystle Johnston will be travelling to Maryborough in June to compete at the Near-North Coast competition.
The Show Society wishes to thank all entrants for their efforts and hopes to attract even more entrants in 2013.
Rural Ambassador Felicity Grigor personally thanked everyone for attending the event as well as all the volunteers who assisted in the preparation behind the scenes.
“I believe it is really important to thank everyone involved in the Show Dance because we could not do without our hard-working volunteers’, says Miss Grigor.
The Sunshine Swing Band sponsored by Easton Lawyers entertained guests of the Show Dance.
