Competition Overview 

The Ekka is proud to host the 11 state finalists for Queensland Country Life Showgirl, a competition promoting young women involved in Queensland's Agricultural Show Movement. These young women are selected from hundreds of entrants across the 128 agricultural shows throughout Queensland.

The Showgirl competition provides these young women with the amazing opportunity to gain personal development, learn life-long skills and pursue leadership roles in the community and in the workplace. The competition has made a significant contribution to the advancement of women in regional and rural areas ever since the first Queensland Showgirl was awarded in 1983.
