4-H members could enter outfits in the constructed outfit lot where they construct the entire outfit, then sew and buy lot where they construct at least one part of their outfit and purchase the other, or the county only selected outfit lot where they model an outfit they have purchased. This new lot allows for more youth to participate in this event at the county level and to get the experience of modeling and being interviewed about their outfit.
Participating in the Senior division were Ashley Ouellette and Lydia Gille (Union). Ashley received a purple on her constructed outfit and Lydia received a blue on her selected outfit.
In the Junior division Ellen Hanson received a purple on her constructed outfit as well as her selected outfit. Jana Bye received a blue on her constructed outfit and a purple on her selected outfit. Kelsy Fallan and Danielle Gille (Union) received purples on their selected outfits and Ashley Geary (Union) received a purple on her sew and buy outfit.
There was several young ladies who participated in the Beginner division. Abby Ouellette, Marley Hanson, Kyleigh Melstad, and Audry Miiller all received purples on their constructed outfits. Taylor Lyso entered two constructed garments and received purples on both of them and Erika Fallan also received a purple on her selected outfit.
Participants receiving a purple ribbon in the constructed or sew and buy lots and who are 13 or older are now eligible to participate in the Fashion Revue Contest at the 2006 South Dakota State Fair in Huron on Sept. 3.
