4-H modeling review showcases youth fashions

| October 3, 2016

COSHOCTON – High fashion models have nothing on the young models for the 4-H modeling review held Saturday, Oct. 1 at the Coshocton County Fair. Few youth showed signs of nervousness as the time to begin came closer and most were excited to show-off their favorite outfits.  A large crowd of family and friends came to cheer for all of the models brave enough to walk and twirl across the stage.

Each model was announced and when he/she was on stage, information was shared about the youth, such as home school, age, and parents’ names. Their outfit was also described and the youth posed for the many cameras in the audience.

Sisters Jacey, 8, and Hanna Hess, 12, were the first models. Both were excited to be part of the show. Jacey said she wanted to do the model review because she got to dress up and her puffy vest was her favorite part of her outfit. Hanna made her lime green dress and the matching purse and said she enjoyed the review because she got to sew her outfit.

Alyza Fender, 7, said she wanted to be part of the model review because she likes to show off.  This year, she got to pick her own outfit that included a sparkly Halloween shirt, skirt and sparkly silver shoes. She was excited to have so many sparkles on her outfit. Her mom, Stephanie, said she thought being part of the review helped Alyza build self-confidence and helps her get used to being in front of people.

Another pair of sisters, Kylie, 10, and Paisley Miller, 8, was also part of the review. Kylie said she wanted to model because it is fun and her favorite part of her outfit was her Americana boots. Paisley decided to model because her sister was doing it and she loves her soft dress. Their mom, Kacie, feels the model review helps her daughters get comfortable in front of people and helps them feel good about themselves. Their grandparents, Dave and Joy Smith, enjoy watching the girls at all of their 4-H events and believe getting involved with 4-H has helped both girls.

The fact that her shirt was purple was Javin Gress’ favorite part of her outfit. The 5- year-old is a Cloverbud in the Happy Tracks 4-H club. Her brother, Gauge, 7, said the buttons on his western style shirt were the best part of his outfit. He is also a Cloverbud. Their mom, Erica, said the review was a good way to help out their club and that her kids can’t wait to bring animal projects to the fair.

Every participant received a ribbon. They also received a small amount of money as a prize. The youth were excited with their ribbons and many said they can’t wait to show-off again next year.
