Three young women this year carried the town's longest held tradition by entering Junee's showgirl contest.
Each year since its inauguration in 1888, Junee's show has boasted at least one entrant in its showgirls contingent.
To commence its 131st show season, three entrants vied to become the latest to wear the sash.
Sara Makeham, Eliza Turton and Jacqueline Timms fronted the judging panel on September 27.
This year, Southern Cross reporter Emma Horn was joined on the judging panel by Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke and regional show society president Stephen Hatty.
All three showgirls are self-described Junee locals and say the defining motivation for their involvement in the contest was to give back to the town that has given them so much.
At 21 years of age, Sara is within weeks of attaining her qualifications in criminal justice from Charles Sturt University.
Over the past several years, she has pursued her career passion across the globe. Winning a scholarship in 2018, she jetted off to the German town of Munster to take part in an intensive community policing summer school project.
When fronting the showgirl judging panel, she admitted that this experience - as well as a similar journey to the Irish city of Limerick - had a profound impact on her personally and professionally.
Eliza, aged 19, combines dual passions in both the sporting arena and the professional world.
She holds aspirations to one day become the director of her own childcare centre and told the judges that she would like to found the centre in her hometown.
Away from her work life, Eliza has been a keen trots driver since childhood. Originally training as a jockey, she made the switch early on, craving the added "thrill and the danger" in the sport.
Locally and abroad, she recognises her biggest contribution to the sport in her ability to break new ground for women in the male-dominated environment.
She told the judges that one of her greatest heroes continues to be Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Michelle Payne.
Jacqueline Timms, also 19, is most comfortable when in front of an audience.
Currently endeavouring a career in nursing, she spent much of her formative years seeking the dramatic arts.
Musical theatre is her main passion, throughout high school she has spent a lot of time on stage in both leading and supporting roles.
Such is her love for music that she has also volunteered her talents around the town, most notably for a recent in-home concert at Cooinda Court, where she treated the gathered crowd to a medley of their favourite Elvis Presley numbers.
Encompassing an enormous range of talents, ambitions, passions and community project involvement, the three women perfectly encompass what it means to be a showgirl entrant.
Following their extended interviews two weeks ago, judge Stephen Hatty noted the giant contributions the three entrants have made so far in such short lives.
"The calibre of the girls was really excellent," Mr Hatty said.
"All three are worthy participants and could easily wear the sash for the town.
"It made for a difficult time distinguishing a clear winner."
The 2020 showgirls winner will be announced at the Junee Show on October 26.
The successful candidate will then compete in the zone seven regional finals to be held next February in Finley.
