FOR Kate Christensen, being crowned 2010 Warwick Rodeo Queen came with more rewards than she anticipated.

Which is why she has taken up the reins as rodeo queen committee chairman and is encouraging other girls to get involved.

"We're trying to entice kids to get involved because it's great for your confidence and to be able to support your local community," Mrs Christensen said.

"It taught me to speak better in public because the more I did it, the better I got."

While entrants have been slowly flowing in, Mrs Christensen reminded those considering it to hop to it.

"The queens always leave it to the last minute (to enter) and we encourage them not to do that," she said.

"The more entrants we get, the better the prizes can be."

LJ Hooker Real Estate and Brigalow Clothing have jumped on board as major sponsors for the quest and Mrs Christensen said it was this kind of support that allowed the quest to happen.

"It means we can put on a great event for the girls and give them great awards for their achievements.

LJ Hooker principal Rob Finlay said the support from his end would not be secluded to the 2012 event.

"It's fantastic opportunity to support a really successful local event and an absolute pleasure to put our name to it, and it will be ongoing," Mr Finlay said.

To enter, drop into the show office at the Warwick Showgrounds and pick up your nomination forms.
