October 09, 2018

Kylie Miller, Vandalia, Mo. and Krayleigh Power, Perry, Mo. from Ralls County were among the 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 eight -18, participated in the county fashion revue competition that was held in July that qualified them to participate in the state contest.

Fashion Revue participants also learned about other topics such as textiles and communication skills.
