Baton Rouge, La. – Coghill School in partnership with Southern University Ag Center’s Youth Educational Support (Y.E.S.) after School Program hosted their first Fashion Fights Poverty Fashion Show.  The Show was held on September 30th at Coghill School’s gym, with an admission fee of a canned good. Participating youth designed and cut their t-shirts and created their own fashion.  All youth entering the t-shirt contest were judged and competed for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in the show. All canned goods and proceeds were brought to the New Orleans Rescue Mission. Youth also created Fashion Fights Poverty Posters with Poverty Slogans. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners took home a free box of Kane’s gift cards and a design kit to decorate other fashions and shirts. 

Assistant Extension Youth Development Agent Krystal Sugulleh Stewart coordinated the event.
