Fashion Show and the East Texas State Fair

The following is for those wish to participate in the Fashion Show at the East Texas State Fair.

Cherokee County 4-H is registered for the 2012 Youth Fashion Show. The contest will be held in January this year. Please go to (

Choose Education, then Academic Rodeo, then Academic Rodeo Schedule for specific dates and deadlines.

One additional change for this year: Construction garments will be submitted in advance for construction judging.

The Smart Buying Division has become very popular with many of our schools in teaching consumer issues. Be sure that your students (AND their parents) understand the requirements for the contest. I often have calls from parents wanting to have the student submit an item that Mom purchased or that they wore in a wedding or other event. The purpose of the contest is for the student to do the comparison shopping and make the decision based on what is learned from the experience.

Also, a garment may not be entered in 2 categories or divisions. Construction of accessories for a purchased garment will not qualify for the Construction Division.

Rules have been updated for clarification of some of the above items. Click this link to read the most current rules:
