On April 30th at Magnolia Intermediate School in Grass Valley, 4-H members from Placer and Nevada counties came together to participate in the annual Bi-County 4-H Fashion Revue. Youth had the opportunity to model and present garments that they had sewn or purchased. In conjunction with the judging event, youth members were able to participate in a fashion show to highlight their specific outfits. The purpose of 4-H Fashion Revue is to inspire appreciation of clothing, textiles, consumer science, personal development, and to promote self-esteem through individual expression. Additionally, 4-H Fashion Revue provides opportunities to extend youth leadership and communication skills.
Volunteer evaluators provided comments and placing, and youth who qualified may move on to the California State 4-H Fashion Revue on May 28 at U. C. Davis, at the 2016 California State 4-H Field Day.
Event chairs were Doris Dixon of the Meadowlarks 4-H Club and Michelle Warmuth of the Penn Valley 4-H Club, with additional leadership from the Placer and Nevada County 4-H All Stars and All Star Advisers. The event was hosted by the Meadowlarks 4-H Club and Nevada County 4-H.
All youth are welcome to participate in the 4-H Youth Development Program, and there is a wide variety of projects for youth to get involved in.
