County Fashion Show

The County Fashion Show has been scheduled for Sunday, April 11, in the Extension office at 4 p.m. The Fashion Show is open to all youth, ages Kindergarten through 12th Grade.

There are two main categories; buying and construction. Participants can either construct a garment or select a ready-to-wear outfit to model.

Additional information can be requested from the Extension office. If you plan to participate in the Fashion Show, please register with the Extension office by Friday, April 9. Consumer Decision Making

A Consumer Decision Making practice will be held prior to the Fashion Show, beginning at 2 pm. Everyone is a consumer and must make purchases to satisfy basic needs, like food, clothing and shelter. Participants in Consumer Decision Making compete either as individuals or as a team. The project teaches decision making and buying skills needed to become an informed consumer.

The District Consumer Decision Making Contest will be held on May 1 in College Station.

For additional information regarding these projects, contact County Extension Agent Tonya Poncik, at (979) 542-2753 or visit the 4-H Office at 310 South Grimes in Giddings.
