Felicia Kendrick (Landsdale), Georgia Gibbs (Wanneroo), Stephanie Wake (Hillarys) and Courtney Read (Carine) competed against 20 other finalists at the Scarborough preliminary last month.

They are looking forward to mixing it with the other state competitors at the national final on June 6.

‘I am most excited about meeting all the girls from other states and getting the chance to showcase WA’s talent on the national stage,’ Gibbs said.

‘The most rewarding experience personally for me is meeting girls with similar interests, and feeling like I’m part of a big family.’

Miss Universe Australia 2011 Scherri-Lee Biggs and radio personalities Will and Woody hosted the event with singer Jerrie Demasi performing INXS song New Sensation.

Oana Simon, of Merriwa, won the viewer’s choice award and Landsdale’s Melissa Barnard the social networker award.
