  • Promote self esteem through individual expression

Registration Information


Members qualify to enter SFR at their county Fashion Revue. Each county may send one delegate per category and age division. Every effort is made to accommodate 4-H members who qualify for both Fashion Revue and Presentation Day with individual, team and Cultural Arts presentations. Scheduling conflicts make it very difficult for Fashion Revue delegates to participate in Share the 4-H Fun Skits. Keep this in mind when planning your participation. It may be possible to participate in the Interview Contest if the interview time can be scheduled during the SFR lunch break. Check with registrars of the events if you have questions.  SFR registration is by online survey, opening in March and closing 2 weeks before the event.


Counties are required to provide one adult judge per every five SFR entries. Also needed are presentation evaluators for Olson Hall to accommodate members dual registered in SFR and State Presentation Day. Registration of judges and evaluators is by online survey.

AGE DIVISIONS (As of 12/31 of the program year)

  • Junior age 9-10
  • Intermediate age 11-13
  • Senior age 14-18


  • 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 two challenges to be determined. 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. SFR Rubric scorecards are available below.
  • 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.
  • Additional rules may be added by the SFR committee as needed.


Traditional - features garments the participant has constructed, showcasing sewing skills and the ability to coordinate an outfit. The entry must be sewn by the member as part of the 4-H Clothing and Textiles project. The outfit must contain at least one constructed garment; participants are encouraged to construct additional garments to complete the outfit. 

Consumer Science Purchased, $40.00 Limit for the entire outfit, includes shoes but not sales tax. Receipts from the current 4-H year are required for any item that is visible. Gifts, prior purchases, and items without receipts are not eligible for this category. Receipts from yard sales, etc. may be hand written. The member should consider value vs. cost, versatility, the shopping experience, and coordination of the outfit within the cost limit. There is no 4-H project requirement; any 4-H member may enter this category. 

Upcycled – take one or more existing garments and turn them into a new, different, and wearable garment. Additional fabrics, trim and supplies may be used during the construction process. The upcycled garment must be sewn by the member as part of the 4-H Clothing & Textiles project. Additional upcycled and/or sewn garments are encouraged to complete the outfit. A “before” photograph showing the original garment(s) is required. This is not an alteration - such as a large dress taken in to fit a smaller person that still retains the same lines. It is where the garment has been cut apart and remade into a new garment that looks different. The emphasis is on the transition of the garment. The outfit entered in the Upcycled category must include an accessory of your choice, handmade by the participant.
