The Nanango Funfest committee is conducting a search for this year’s Heritage Nanango Mardi Gras
All young women aged 16 years or over who live in Nanango or the surrounding districts are eligible
to take part (although contestants under 18 years of age will require their parent or guardian’s consent).
And the winner will receive $1000 worth of prizes, including $500 cash.
Judging for this year’s Princess will take place at a gala $20 per head public event held at Nanango’s
Copper Country Restaurant on Wednesday, October 9.
At the judging, contestants will be introduced individually by the compere and invited to make a brief
presentation outlining their background and expectations for the role of Princess.
Guests will then be given an opportunity to vote for the contestant of their choice by secret ballot.
The winner will be decided solely on the basis of the number of votes received, and will be crowned
Heritage Nanango Mardi Gras Princess 2013 on the night.
The Princess will take a prominent place in the Mardi Gras Parade through the streets of Nanango on
Saturday, October 12.
To enter, girls need to complete and return the official 2013 entry form along with a sponsorship fee of $100 to the Nanango Funfest committee by Monday, September 23.
