Members of the 4-H club strutted their stuff down the runway on Tuesday night in handmade clothes.
â€œThe goal of the fashion show is to help the participants develop some sewing skills, project skills, that they can use later,â€ said April Dillon, 4-H development extension agent. â€œI donâ€™t know how many adults can sew a button anymore.â€
The fashion revue, held at the James W. Warren Citizens Center, featured three categories: cloverbuds, juniors, early teens and seniors.
Clothes took anywhere from four hours to a number of months to create.
First place winners were Summer Deaton, Karin Okonski and Holly Mills. Second place winners were Chelsea Mills and Emily Sherrill. Cayla Miller received a third place prize.
The event also included a talent show in which Guy and Joseph Perkins received first place, the Rising Sun 4-Hâ€™ers received second place and the 4-H Poultry Club received third place.
The show had a total of 28 4-H members participating.
â€œOur mission is to help children develop into successful, competent young adults,â€ said Dillon. â€œAnd we do that through help them develop life skills and subject matter skills.â€
