Junior Jaca a royal experience

JUNIOR Jacaranda Queen Sophie Brindle wore her crown and tiara proudly during the 2010 festival and hopes the 2011 winner will have just as much fun as she did.

“I never expected to win it and I had a great time during the quest, so it wouldn’t really have mattered if I didn’t (win),” Sophie said.

She recommended entering the competition to others in her age group.

“It really does help you grow as a person,” she said.

“It has improved my public speaking so much, which also helps with school.

“It really was a valuable and unforgettable experience. I met so many new people and made great friends.”

Sophie said her favourite parts of the quest were getting to strut her stuff on the catwalk during the annual Jacaranda Fashion Parade and getting dressed up for the ball and crowning night.

Nomination forms will be available from the Grafton Westpac Branch from 9.30am Monday.

The competition is open to the first 10 girls who return their nomination form to Westpac.
