Here is a really neat idea for a T-shirt dress from Ariel, the lead singer from Icon for Hire.  Might be a cute idea to make for the fashion/trashion show.  This would look very cute with jeans for leggings.

Window WOWed
This was a new contest for the District beginning in 2011. The idea is for teams of up to five (5) members of any age to design a window display using merchandizing and marketing techniques to “market” fashion merchandise and products. Guidelines follow.

 Display area is 8 feet long, 8 feet high, and 30 inches wide. One 8 foot table will be provided.

Two 8 feet lattice panels may be available for use (depending on number of entries).

 Display can start from the table or from the floor.

 Creativity is encouraged but display should coordinate with the theme. Teams must provide everything they use in the display.

 4-H must be incorporated into the display.

 Participants will have an hour and 30 minutes to complete the display.

 All teams will start and stop simultaneously.

 Theme: Be True to Who You Are (Don’t forget to incorporate 4-H in the theme)


Decorate a shoe and bring to the Showcase. Judging will be based on creativity, originality and workmanship.

Decorations may be purchased or handmade. No entry to exceed 24” X 24” X 24”.

> This is not a team event.

> Theme: Add some Clover to Your 4H Project Style                                                            (Don’t forget to incorporate 4-H in the theme)

Incorporate the best parts of your favorite project into your shoe decorations! Are you in a fashion project? Think rickrack and buttons! Are you in a nutrition project? Try food or cooking utensils. Sport fishing? Throw on some lures and fish tack! Photographer? Add some film or photos. You get the idea, now get creative!
