Friday night in Leonora and the street outside the Leonora Recreation Centre was a buzz of excitement, friends, family and passersby were queuing to get in for the inaugural GoldfieldsGirl2017, Leonora heat. Walkatjurra Cultural Centre were proud to host Goolari Media in the very first heat of the GoldfieldsGirl in Leonora. Everyone on the community came out to show support for the Girls and the Goolarri team were strongly supported by community members who helped in judging, makeup, MC’ing and all of those tasks that show how a community cares.
The event that took these young ladies from being sisters, cousins, daughters, granddaughters to role models, the eyes of young girls in the audience light up with a spark “I could be like them!”
In what was probably one of the hardest decisions ever, the judges chose three young women to represent Leonora in the GoldfieldsGirl2017 Finals event in Kalgoorlie on 2nd June 2017.
A special mention to the Walkatjurra Artists who’se Walkatjurra Scarves were beautifully worn with pride by GoldfieldsGirls.
