Dairy Queen and Princess Competition

Dairy Queen and Princess Competition – scheduled to be hosted again in 2025.

In conjunction with the 2025 Malanda Show the Show Society will once again host the Dairy Queen and Princess Competition.    In previous years the community has rallied behind the young entrants who have stood out of their comfort zone and supported our community.

There are two age group categories, and each have specific criteria. Please refer to the nomination details for full conditions of entry.   The two categories of ‘Princess’ & ‘Queen’ require a sponsor.  We intend for this experience to be beneficial for both the Queen entrants and their sponsors.  The sponsors can expect to be mentioned throughout the marketing process of the competition.  Princess and Queen entrants need to consider what they can offer to their sponsors.  As a sponsor this is an excellent opportunity to have your entrant around town promoting your business!

We ask that sponsors please negotiate with their entrant how they can assist them with the costs associated with this competition.  Please discuss this with your entrant.
