Ballandean teenager Kahlia Williamson is set to step out at Ekka to represent her community, after being named Darling Downs Subchamber Miss Showgirl at the the Toowoomba Royal Show.

Ms Williamson, 19, claimed the title while representing the Stanthorpe Agriculture Society.

It wasn't Ms Williamson's only success for the day, with the stud she owns along with brother Adam, A.T Limousins, taking out the beef cattle award for large breed interbreed champion cow. 

Ms Williamson said being announced as the Darling Downs Subchamber Miss Showgirl was a shock but a really good feeling.

"I've always wanted to be a showgirl because when I was younger they always inspired me so I wanted to be someone younger women can look up to for inspiration," she said.

"It's great to be in two sections... it's great to be in the two different parts of the industry.

She will now go on to represent the Darling Downs at the Ekka in August.

"It's going to be a great experience," she said.

"I'm really looking forward to it and I hope I get the opportunity to really express what the Darling Downs has to offer."

Ms Williamson is studying veterinary nursing and works full-time at a vet clinic in Stanthorpe.

She hopes to spend two years in Townsville working in a 24 hour clinic, before coming back to work in general practice around rural areas and on farm where needed.

Ms Williamson said she envisages a busy few months ahead of her after Saturday's win.

"It's a pretty full-time thing having stud cattle and now Showgirl and preparing for Brisbane, it's going to be full on,"  she said.

Jasmine Kidman from Cooyar was named as runner-up, while Pittsworth's Mikaela Mouritz won the Miss Popular award.
