Grant County 4-H’ers held a 4-H Fashion Revue youth-in-action event July 11. A public runway show was presented at 6 p.m. in conjunction with Downtown Tuesdays.
The Grant County 4-H Office also hosted a workshop. “The two-day workshop focused on selecting outfits and preparing for the youth-in-action judging,” says Sara Koepke, Grant County 4-H Youth Program Advisor. “The first day, each youth was given $10 to pick out an outfit from the Community Thrift Store. They were challenged to select an outfit to incorporate into their existing wardrobe and could be worn multiple times.”
