October 6, 1967: Show girl can-can

June 09, 2017

The criteria for success at this year's Miss Shepparton Show Girl quest will remain unaltered.

The judges will seek a combination of beauty, poise, dress sense and general intelligence and when selected, all these attributes will be weighed against the most delicious canned fruit in the SPC range.

This week the president of Shepparton Agricultural Society Mr Pat O'Connell tested the scales to be used at the 'weigh-out' ceremony.

Last year's Miss Shepparton Show Girl winner Miss Judy Robertson provided the counter-balance.

Winners will receive their weight in fruit as a gift from the cannery.
