Jane did it for love



FOR Jane Wilson being crowned the Kyogle Showgirl was a win not only for her, but also for her late grandfather.

"My grandfather died 18 months ago and he would have loved to see me win," 22-year-old Ms Wilson said.

"He had always tried to get his own daughters to enter the Kyogle Showgirl com- petition, but they wouldn't enter.

"So I wanted to win it for him."

Ms Wilson grew up in Kyogle, but lives in Kingscliff where she works for a town planning company as an executive administration officer.

"I'm a Kyogle girl at heart, and I'm still a dairy farmer's daughter," she said.

And Ms Wilson had a few tips for any potential showgirls.

"At the judging meal you should sit with your back straight.

"And, just like in Pretty Woman, use your cutlery from the outside in.

"Make sure you look at the judges because eye contact is important."

She said not to expect too many curly questions.

"They want to know about your personality, as well as your local and international knowledge," she said.
