Linn County 4-H members in the clothing project participated in the Clothing Event competition on Tuesday, June 18. For the clothing selection division, 4-H’ers competing, selected outfits that represented the member’s intended use of the outfit. In the Fashion Revue division members constructed a garment of their choice. The $15 challenge challenges youth to create an outfit for under $15 from alternative sources such as resale stores. After judging, the participants had the opportunity to model their outfits at the Fashion Show on Sunday, July 7 at the Linn County Fairgrounds.
