Sisters take to catwalk

IT’S a girl thing – and a sister thing for this year’s Miss Country Girl Australia.

Erika, 18, Sarah, 15, Sharnee, 13 and Hannah Edwards, 10, have all entered in the Gladstone heats for the modelling competition and are eagerly awaiting the event.

“We all entered for the experience and I have been interested in modelling for a while,” Erika said.

All four girls have never done anything like this before and are all a bit nervous coming up to the big event.

“We have been trying to walk in high heels and practising our catwalk but really there isn’t much to do,” Erika said.

The competition is for girls aged between 10 and 28 and it is a great chance for young girls to get their feel for the catwalk in their own backyard.

Heats will be held at Stockland, Gladstone from July 6 to July 8 and Queensland Director Sally Miles said it was the perfect opportunity for girls to transform from a country town girl into a supermodel.

“Miss Country Girl Australia provides young women with an opportunity to establish a professional and exciting modelling career by breaking geographic boundaries and allowing these truly Australian girls to shine,” Ms Miles said.
