We just completed our Ramsey County Communication Arts and Clothing Revue on Sunday, May 2. We were thrilled to have 20 participants in the Clothing Revue and 17 presentations in our Communication Arts contest.

All participants in the Clothing Revue were in the “Buy and Show” category. The main objective of the Buy and Show is to select a ready-to-wear garment or garments that can be used effectively in a wardrobe. The clothing items have either been purchased at a retail store, a secondhand store, garage sale, or picked right out of their closet.

The results of the Clothing Revue are:

Cloverbuds: Ellie Dimmler, Austin Duey, Daphne Leiphon, Scarlett Leiphon, Lydia Volk, Adalynn Mayfield, Clara Rohr, and Myles Exner. They all received a participation ribbon and were so fun to watch!

In the Pre-teen division, we had receiving blue ribbons: Talia Laite, Slaid Helen Schmid, Liam Nelson, Julia Rohr, Opal Beggs, and Landry Exner. Reserve Champions went to Paisley Schmid and Makaela Hettwer. Grand Champion went to Ty Volk and Megan Hawn.

In the teen division, Bailey Hawn received Reserve Champion and Grand Champion went to Mathea Nelson.

The Communication Arts program provides youth with opportunities to build skills and confidence in making public presentations and helps participants develop communication skills used throughout a lifetime.
