ONE of the time-honoured features of the Ko-
rumburra Show through the years has been the
‘Miss Showgirl Quest’.
And it’s still part of the show today, although it
has been modified over the years.
These days it’s all about the kids, under 12,
and there’s no real dress code, just nice, tidy
show attire will do.
There’s the main section, for ages 7 to under
12, in the Miss Showgirl event, plus there’s also
the following sections:
• Little Miss Korumburra Showgirl (ages
• Korumburra Master Tot (boys aged 2 to
Trophies and sashes are sponsored by the
Lions Club of Korumburra. Inquiries at the
secretary’s office on the day.
Back in the day, the ‘Sun Miss Showgirl’ sash
was eagerly sought-after, as was the chance to go
forward to regional and state judging as a way
to enter a modelling or public relations career.
Dress to impress
at the show
Fifty years ago,
the Miss Showgirl
Quest was a dif-
ferent affair with
dozens of teenage
girls dressing up
in their finery, Mel-
bourne Cup style,
in an effort to win
the prize and the
right to go forward
to regional and ulti-
mately Royal Show
judging. Back at
the 1967 Korum-
burra Show it was
who won the sash
with Janine Ce-
cil of Poowong the
runner-up. The lo-
cal paper gave a
description of the
girl’s outfits and
also the fact that
they’d placed en-
tries in the pavilion
sections as well.
In the photo, taken at the Bass Valley Estate Wines, where we had a Rotary social function
on Tuesday evening, are Peter Biggins and Marilyn Sim holding up the raffle prize for this
year’s art show.
