4-H Achievement Day












Achievement Day is for everybody! Achievement Day is usually held in the Spring. Watch your newsletter for date and registration information. See below what activities you can participate in.

Fashion Revue

4-H Fashion Revue will be part of Achievement Day. The top participant in each section will advance to the State 4-H Fashion Revue in Columbia, MO in September.

  • Overview of the 4-H Clothing project - http://4h.missouri.edu/clothing/projects
  • Garment Data Form - We need to know what participants will be wearing in the 4-H Fashion Revue. Your ensemble and accessories should reflect the season for which they are intended to be worn, and should not be altered just because the Fashion Revue is held in the spring/summer. It is important that a complete description of the outfit be given on the Garment Data Form. Describe the specific details that make up the design. (The back of the pattern envelope is a good source of descriptive terms for those in the Clothes You Make category). Please fill in the requested information as accurately as possible.  The Garment Data Forms are also used for news releases and commentary. If chosen to compete at the State 4-H Fashion Revue: The Garment Data Form must include one full-length, color photograph of you wearing the complete outfit (including accessories) that you will model. This photo may be taken at your 4-H county event. The photo is used for category placements and background information for the judges and fashion show coordinator. The photo should fit the area designated on the registration form.
