Wearing huge smiles and the brightly colored, stylish outfits they had made, 18 young garnet makers delighted an appreciative audience in Tuesday night’s Brown County Youth Fair Home Economics Division fashion show.
    Announcer Brittany Cox told audience members who packed the Home Economics Division building more than once that judges for the three clothing divisions — senior (grades 9-12), intermediate (grades 6-8) and intermediate (grades 3-5) had a difficult time picking a grand championed reserve grand champion from each division.
    At the end of the fashion show, Cox announced the decision of the judges, which had been based on appearance judging and construction judging Monday.
    The winners were:

Senior clothing
    Grand champion — Kayleah Hall, a freshman member of the Bangs 4-H Club.
    Reserve grand champion — Hannah Hull, a junior member of the Early FFA.

Intermediate clothing
    Grand champion — Kimberly Diaz, an eighth-grade member of the Bangs 4-H Club.
    Reserve grand champion — Lillie Brandstetter, a sixth-grade member of the Early FCCLA.
    
Junior clothing
    Grand champion — Hannah Deen, a fifth-grade member of the 4-H Sheep Club.
    Reserve grand champion — Aubrey Bishop, a fourth-grade member of the Bangs 4-H Club.
    
Top model awards
Also at the end of the fashion show, Cox announced the top model award winner from each division:
    Senior clothing — Tara Glasscock, a senior member of the Early FFA.
    Intermediate clothing — Rylah Morgan, a seventh-grade member of the Brownwood 4-H Club.
    Junior clothing — Henslie Hohertz, a fifth-grade member of the 4-H Sheep Club.
    A total of 20 exhibitors had signed up for the fashion show, but two were excused because of basketball commitments. Youth fair queen candidates Tara Glasscock and Madi Mayo held the clothing those two exhibitors had made — including formal wear dress made by Kayleah Hall, the senior clothing grand champion winner.
    “It was a big success, both on and off the stage,” Junior Assistant Clothing Superintendent Melissa Burney said. “We had many talented young men and women participate, and we appreciate everyone’s continued support.”
