Local 4-H’ers Compete At 4-H Regional Fashion Revue

Seven Lackawanna County 4-H textile science members recently competed in the regional 4-H fashion revue in Dushore, PA.  The young women were:  Maria Parola, Moscow; Julia Mazur, Olyphant; Alexis Heffley, Dalton; Lindsey Bartell, Emily Bartell, and Lauren Bartell, Clarks Summit; and Faith Hosie, Jessup.

Thirty-six members from Lackawanna, Susquehanna, Bradford, Sullivan, Tioga and Wyoming Counties were judged with their garments in appearance, fit, design, and fashion and construction techniques.  In addition, participants attended workshops on modeling, Dress for Success, and making scissors pouches.

The day concluded with a fashion show and awards presentation.  Lindsey Bartell was named winner in the junior wearable year 2 division. In addition, Maria Parola and Julia Mazur will represent Lackawanna County at the State fashion revue on the main campus of Penn State University on July 24, competing against 4-H’ers from across the State for the top 12 places.

The 4-H textile science program is sponsored by Penn State Extension.  It teaches youth, ages eight to eighteen, clothing construction skills as well as increases their self-esteem, poise and confidence.
