Elinor Named Singleton Show Young Woman 2023


Elinor Bowman expressed excitement and gratitude after she was named Singleton Show Young Woman 2023 on Saturday night and is looking forward to taking on the role with both hands when the event begins today (Friday).

Singleton Show is now in its 149th year and will be celebrated in full today and tomorrow, September 22 and 23, with the horse events to be held on Sunday.

Elinor is looking forward to the opportunity to be Singleton’s ambassador at a zone and state level of the Young Royal Agricultural Society’s Young Woman of the Year and what an ambassador she will be.

When you look at her resume it is difficult to comprehend this impressive young woman is just 24 years of age.  She has completed a double degree in Bachelor of Law and Bachelor of International Studies and currently works in the Energy and Infrastructure Team of the Banking and projects group at Gilbert and Tobin Lawyers in Sydney.

She is a member of the CWA Sydney City branch, a life member of the Northern Agricultural Association, a mentor to three uni students and volunteers with the Refugee Advice and Casework Services and Marrickville Legal Centre to provide pro bono legal advice to people who would not otherwise have access to it.  She is also a proud Girl Guide having discovered her love of the organisation growing up in Singleton and developed her musicianship as a member of Singleton Town Band.

Now she can add Singleton Show Young Woman to her resume and loves this strengthened relationship with this annual event.

“I have grown up around Singleton Show from entering arts and crafts in the handicraft competitions in primary school to playing in the town band at the show opening and volunteering in the tea rooms,” Elinor said.

She said over the years she has aspired to entering the competition, formerly known as Singleton Showgirl, and believes it is an incredible platform to support and represent not only Singleton, but rural and regional communities in Australia.
