Greensburg girl earns PA Farm Show fashion honors
Emily Jumper, 17, of Greensburg took Best in Show honors Saturday in the 4-H Fashion with a Flair competition at the 103rd Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg.
Jumper topped the field wearing her pink formal-wear dress with a wrap and trumpet skirt she made from a matching rainbow-patterned fabric. She wore the outfit to two proms and created a matching tie for her date.
She advanced to the final round with a first-place finish in the senior party/formal- wear category.
John Clark Bruner of Blairsville took second place in the 4-H intermediate category with a colonial re-enactor’s outfit he intends to wear for events at Fort Ligonier in Ligonier, a reconstruction of a frontier outpost used by British troops during the French and Indian War.
Elizabeth Bruner of Blairsville took second place in the senior category for one- or two-piece outfits.
