Boone County 4-H members were among 112 4-H members who participated in the 4-H Fashion Show at Grand Island on Sunday, Aug. 30.  This year, the Nebraska State Fair 4-H Fashion Show was divided into three, smaller fashion shows to accommodate the new space in Raising Nebraska, and social distancing requirements.
The 4-H members modeled for a panel of judges and for a ticketed crowd estimated at 250 during the state fair.
Kyra Kruse, daughter of Kevin and Deanna Kruse of Albion, received a purple ribbon in the State Fair 4-H Fashion Show. Kyra constructed an elegant black floral princess cut dress that featured pockets and an invisible zipper. Kyra has been a Boone County 4-H member for six years and is a member of the Clever Clovers 4-H Club. 
Claire Weidner, daughter of Dave and Kristi Weidner of Albion, received a purple ribbon in the State Fair 4-H Fashion Show.  Claire constructed a cool navy-blue bodysuit paired with a blue and white striped vintage wrap skirt. Claire has been a Boone County 4-H member for eight years and is a member of the Clever Clovers 4-H Club.
