The 4-H fashion revue contest gives young people the opportunity to create their own garment and present it in front of judges and an audience. To come to the conclusions reported here, the participant entry forms, participant evaluations, and judges’ comments representing seven years (2006-2013) of state fashion revue participation in Pennsylvania were analyzed. No differences were found in cost or time allocation among those who placed as award winners and those who did not place. Data and participant comments indicated that participants gained some life skills. In addition, more than one-third of the youth involved in these contests were found to mend for their family and friends as part of their 4-H textile and clothing experiences.
