Anna Ahrens, Maggie Howe, and Reagan Howe from Cape Girardeau County were one of 76 Missouri youth that participated in a clothing construction and consumerism contest during State 4-H Fashion Review on September 22 on the University of Missouri campus.
“This contest helps youth enhance their skills and knowledge about sewing, clothing selection, knitting and crotchet and the importance of life skills like setting and achieving goals,” said Alison Copeland, Interim MU 4-H Program Leader. “State 4-H Fashion Revue is also about engaging youth with the research, education and other efforts MU is doing in these areas. We want them to see what they might be able to do with their interests in college.” The participants, ranging in ages 8-18, participated in a local fashion revue competition either in their county or regional area that qualified them to participate in the state contest.
Fashion Revue participants also learned about other topics such as textiles and communication skills.
Anna Ahrens particiapted in the Knitting Category. Reagan Howe participated in the Junior Clothes You Make category. Maggie Howe placed 1st in the Senior Formal Wear, Clothes You Make. She won a $50 Wal-Mart gift card.
