|Oh So Beautiful Chalkboard Paper|
One of the most important things potential employers look for after college beyond your GPA, is the leadership that you had throughout your years in college. Internships are important, but it seems with such a competitive market of prestigious and highly educated fresh grad's, every differential advantage that you can find will help.

Something that I fell in love with a few years ago was organizing and designing the 4-H fashion show in Isanti County.
Like most 4-H events, Fashion Revue is a judged event, girls and boys sew their outfits or style an outfit they bought, and get judged on their design choices, their knowledge of the outfit, the care, and how it fits into their wardrobe. Afterwards, there is a fashion show during the county fair where the participants model their creations and find out who won Grand, Reserve, etc. and who will be going to the state fair for the next level!
Last year I was too busy with ballet and work to organize the event, and as a result Fashion Revue honestly took a turn for the worst.
This year I want to revitalize the entire Fashion Revue program. Make it beautiful and exciting for youth to be apart of, involving them in every way possible and inspiring them to create! It could also result in being a great fundraiser for 4H if done right.

I've started brainstorming some ideas, here's what I've thought up:
Chalkboard styled background: messages from youth participants to help them be involved in the creation
Pink Paper flowers
Workshops to help develop sewing/styling skills
A Very "luxe" feel - Invitations
Goodie bags for participants
I'm really excited about this project! I hope it inspires youth to get more involved in 4H and develop more excitement for the program and help build leadership skills so upcoming youth are willing to take the reigns eventually. I will keep you updated on the process!
And I'd love to hear from you! Leave a comment below answering this question!
What are your plans to make your Resume's stand out in terms of Leadership?
