The Land Sydney Showgirl Competition Zone 3 final
was held in Cooma on Saturday.
Verity Price of Crookwell (pictured) will be off to the

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

interviewing the girls and finished with a formal
dinner at the Cooma Ex-Services Club. NSW

to have been selected at the Zone 3 final, thanking
her fellow competitors.

a project officer. She is an active member of the
Bannister bushfire brigade and helps organise
the Bannister Big Bash, hosted on her family
farm every Australia Day.

Crookwell Community Chest and Ms Price
enjoys seeing the community come together
at this event to support one another.
Ms Price has a strong interest in the cattle
Her goal is to assist in developing a self-
sustainable domestic beef industry.
She would like to educate producers on
the value of quality assurance programs for

Ms Price entered the showgirl competition
to develop her communication skills and
to develop a better understanding of the
challenges the younger generation are facing
in the agricultural industry.
