- Bachelor of Agricultural Science student Miss Kate Webster named Wagga Showgirl 2019
- Miss Webster will compete at the zone finals in February 2020
A Charles Sturt University (Charles Sturt) student was inspired by her background in agriculture to enter the Wagga Showgirl competition.
Fourth-year Bachelor of Agricultural Science honours student Miss Kate Webster was announced as the Wagga Showgirl 2019 at the annual event in Wagga Wagga on Friday 6 September.
Miss Webster has been part of the Wagga Wagga Show Society for three years as part of the Next Generation Group and runs an interactive zone for children to educate the next generation about agriculture.
She entered the Wagga Showgirl competition two years ago but was unsuccessful, and she attributes her win this year to the confidence and skills she gained during that time.
“You get an opportunity to develop yourself personally through public speaking and meet like-minded women in the rural community,” Miss Webster said.
“You don’t have to make it to the zone finals to get something out of this competition.”
Miss Webster will compete in the zone finals in February 2020 and if successful, will go on to compete at the Royal Easter Show in Sydney.
Miss Webster intends to make use of her title to integrate more into the Wagga Wagga community in the next 12 months and continue her work with the show society.
