THE Warwick Show and Rodeo Society are calling all cowgirls around the Downs to nominate for Rodeo Queen 2012.

Winner in 2010 Kate Christensen said it was important local girls put their names down so the face of the rodeo was from the region.

"It's really important we are representing Warwick in our own rodeo," Mrs Christensen said.

With only five nominations in so far, she said numbers were fairly low.

"It has been a slow start, but we recommend girls join the quest now so they can get their fundraising in early," Mrs Christensen said.

"We've put a big call out for local girls because it really is a great experience to get out and represent your community.

"A lot of local knowledge is a big benefit in the competition so get your names in."

So far, three queens and two princesses have been nominated, none of which are from Warwick - so get your entries in and compete to be the face of the Warwick Rodeo.

Drop in to the show office at the showgrounds to pick up your nomination form. Entries close October 5.
