This special Hawthorne competition brought out the fashionista in a number of young pupils. 



Hawthorne Elementary School children participated in a Trash to Fashion event on Wednesday, March 23.  Ten teams presented a number of unique fashions which were judged by School Board member Tracy Davidson, volunteer Linda Ferguson and representatives from Ohio Reading Corps.  Student creations were judged on the following criteria:

  • Materials: at least 90% trash/recyclable materials
  • Innovation:  How innovative and original was the idea?
  • Visual Impact:  Did the outfit demand attention?
  • Construction & Design:  How did the garment hold up under judging/moving?

Bonus points were given for adherence to school dress code, sizing, and incorporation of this year’s theme, Technology.   Winners advanced to the Starry Night Trash for Fashion contest.
