MORE than 35 girls have made it to the final round of the Miss Country Girl competition which will take place today at 11am.

The catwalk is set up in Rose City Shoppingworld, outside the Bi Lo store.

There is a junior competition for those aged between 8 and 12 years and a senior division for the 13-28 years.

"For most of these girls, it is there first time modelling," Miss Country Girl national director Katie Jones said yesterday.

"Our unique modelling pageant stages model search competitions in selected towns across the country to find aspiring girls and provide them with the opportunities and platform to be recognised and exposed to a worldwide audience."

Prizes include gift packs, a crown and more modelling opportunities. Monday's paper has more photos and information on the winners.
