Participant Information

AGE DIVISIONS (As of December 31st of the program year)

  • Junior age 9-10
  • Intermediate age 11-13
  • Senior age 14-19

RULES FOR ALL CATEGORIES:

  • The outfit must be produced and modeled by the individual member during judging and the fashion show (not created for someone else).
  • All outfits must meet the 4-H Dress Guidelines, found at http://4h.ucanr.edu/files/210170.pdf. For State Fashion Revue (SFR), all shorts, skirts, dresses, etc. must be at least fingertip length due to the raised stage for the fashion show. County Fashion Revue coordinators will review all outfits based on these guidelines before SFR entry, with further review by the SFR Committee if needed.
  • All outfits entered in SFR must be suitable for comfortably walking, sitting, and going up and down stairs because of the schedule and location of SFR and the fashion show.
  • The 5 categories for 2018 SFR are Traditional, Upcycled, Consumer Science Purchased $40 limit, and the 2 challenges: See It, Sew It Challenge and Retro/Vintage Inspired Challenge. Only these 5 categories are included for 2018 at the state event. All entries in the state event must conform to the SFR category rules.
  • A member may only enter one outfit in State Fashion Revue.
  • Counties may offer additional categories at the local level. Counties may allow members to enter more than one category at the local level. If so, each entry must contain different garments, shoes and accessories. A garment worn in one entry may not also be worn in a different entry. For example, a top entered in a Challenge category may not also be entered in the Traditional category.
  • A county may qualify one member in each age division (Junior, Intermediate and Senior) and each of the five categories to advance to State Fashion Revue. Participants should expect competition at SFR to be at a higher level than at the county events.
  • Participation in the SFR Fashion Show is a required element of the event or awards are forfeited.
  • Participants entering SFR may be dual-entered in State Presentation Day except the Share the 4-H Fun skit due to scheduling conflicts. 
  • All SFR participants and family members are invited to attend the SFR workshops, Make it-Take it sessions and Silent Auction.
