On May 24, Morton County held the annual 4-H Clothing Revue and Project Expo at the Morton County Courthouse in Mandan.

The following Morton County 4-Her’s received Awards of Excellence and will be representing Morton County at the North Dakota State Fair: Project Expo – Brandon Hoines, Elijah Mayer and Florence Mayer. Preteen Sew and Show – Tovah Danielson. Preteen Buy and Show – Ellie Bierman and Allison Smith. Preteen Decorate Your Duds – Allison Smith, Ellie Bierman and Lauryn Hinckley.

Project Expo provides youth with an experience in planning, preparing and displaying an article or an educational exhibit. It is an opportunity for self-expression both verbally and visually. Project Expo also provides the opportunity to share with others what has been learned in the specific project.

Clothing Revue included entries for Buy and Show, Decorate Your Duds and Sew and Show. Buy and Show participants purchase or recycle a major item of clothing which relates to a wardrobe plan. Decorate Your Duds participants create embellishments for a garment or accessory. Sew and Show participants select a pattern and construct the item using sewing skills.
