LEETON'S 2019 Showgirl Jemma Leeson will be heading off this weekend to see if she can progress to the next level of the competition.
Miss Leeson will be heading to the zone seven final in Finley on Saturday where she will be competing against other Showgirl winners from across the region for a place at the Sydney Royal Showgirl competition over Easter.
The Showgirl competition aims to find a young woman to act as an ambassador for rural NSW with her role involving many official and informal duties both at the Sydney Royal Easter Show and during her travels interstate and overseas.
It encourages the participation and subsequent awareness of rural women's contribution and involvement in both local communities and rural NSW as a whole.
It is important the Showgirls have a genuine interest in, and knowledge of, rural NSW.
After winning at the Leeton level last year, Miss Leeson said she was excited to be taking part in the process.
"I think it's crucial we keep it going," she said.
"Even though I was the only entrant, I did get a lot out of the experience, especially when speaking with the judges."
