Fashion Revue has been a part of 4-H since it's start in the 1920s. The Fashion Revue is an exciting opportunity that involves workshops for community projects, learning to model with confidence, and having your garment evaluated by judges for quality of construction and overall appearance. Those members who score high will be then eligible to go to Penn State Achievement Days at State College to compete for State-level awards.
The objective of 4-H Presentation Night is to provide an opportunity for 4-H members to practice organizing and presenting an idea in front of a group. They are able to demonstrate their communication skills in a competitive format and receive constructive comments from judges. Ribbons are awarded based on accumulated points and awards are given to all participating 4-H members. 4-H leaders, parents, and volunteers from the community served as judges for the evening. There are three communication formats:
- Presentation is an organized illustrated talk using models, posters, slides, or other visual aids to help the member make his/her point
- Prepared speech is an organized talk with no illustrations and involves the use of words, voice, and gestures to help make his/her point
- Impromptu speech is a talk on a familiar 4-H topic assigned to the member with 10 minutes to organize thoughts and involves the use of words, voice, and gestures to make his/her point
