TAYLOR Duxfield's friends told her she would make a pretty good Warwick Junior Showgirl, so the 16-year-old signed up for the challenge.
"My friends really encouraged me to do this," she said.
"So that's why I decided to."
Taylor said she had already starting thinking about how to get the best out of the quest.
"I have been thinking about fundraising ideas, maybe a car wash and I'll be doing raffles and a sausage sizzle at IGA," she said.
The Warwick State High School student - who also studies design fundamentals at TAFE - said she was most looking forward to the atmosphere of the event.
"And meeting people and getting dressed up as well," Taylor said.
She said she hoped to continue working with her art when she finished school at the end of this year.
"I would like to do something with airbrushing and stuff like that," Taylor said. "I love art."
In the meantime the Rose City teen said she would concentrate on finishing school, her part-time job at IGA and her quest to be crowned Miss Warwick Junior Showgirl.
The winning Warwick Showgirl and Junior Showgirl entrants will be announced at the Show Ball at Douglas Feez Pavilion on March 10 from 6.30pm.
The 145th Warwick Show kicks off a few weeks later at 7am Friday, March 23, and continues all weekend.
The Daily News will have more coverage in the coming weeks.
