Post News Director Canon Rath caught up with 4-H'er McKenna Lundvall and 4-H Development Extension Educator Caitlyn Jacobson about the 4-H Fashion Revue and Clothing Project.
NORTH PLATTE - 4-H is America's largest youth development program across the United States that helps learn skills that will last a lifetime. The age requirement for 4-H is the ages of 8-18. There are many different categories that 4-H'ers can participate in during their time in the program. Some kids may not like showing animals as 4-H offers many other categories to participate in. One is the fashion revue.
The 4-H Fashion Revue is how a person can present himself/herself through clothing, grooming, facial expression and body movement is a form of communication. The goal is to help develop an understanding of personal presentation in public situations with regard to clothing, accessories and grooming. Sewing is an area that can be tough for many at first. "I did tie-dye in the beginning because I really didn't know how to sew and progressively you get more skills in sewing," said 4-H'er McKenna Lundvall.
