Bosque County 4-H members who did well at the county level advanced and competed at the District 8 4-H Fashion Show and Fashion Storyboard Contest on April 4th in Granbury. Senior 4-H members had an opportunity to advance to the Texas 4-H Roundup, if placed high enough.
The Fashion Show recognizes 4-H members who have excelled in clothing projects. These 4-H members also exhibit skills in the application of knowledge of fibers and fabrics to wardrobe selection, clothing construction, or comparison shopping, fashion interpretation and understanding of style, good grooming and poise in front of others, and modeling and presentation of themselves and their garments.
The purpose of the 4-H Fashion Storyboard contest is to give 4-H members an opportunity to create a storyboard of their original design. It also provides the members an opportunity to gain knowledge of the career responsibilities of a fashion designer and illustrator, enhance creativity and originality, and develop visual communication skills.
The Trashion Show, which is a new contest this year, provides an opportunity for 4-H members to use their design skills to create and exhibit a recycled/reused garment created from items that would otherwise be thrown in the trash.
Below are the results from the District Contest.
