Former high school teacher Bonnie Mohs served as judge for the event and was inspired to award each outfit with a special title.

Angelica Ballard, the youngest participant, won the 5-12 year old age category and also the "Best Use of Expired Media Award."

"Most Likely to Go to Prom" and winner of the Ages 13-18 category was Bailey Yliniemi.

Kandice Birkey, modeling a garbage/grocery bag dress designed by Travis Guntermann, was the 18 & older category winner and the special award, "Ready for the Red Carpet At the Academy Awards."

Diane McCormack modeled three outfits and was acknowledged for "Best Formal Attire," "Best Use of Accessories" and "Ready for Halloween" awards.

The "Best Rain Outfit" was modeled by Deb Ormseth, and Katie Fish was given the "School Spirit" title.

The style show was the culmination of the Project Runway Recycled Outfits class supported by Detroit Lakes Community Education, Sandy Gunderson, Becker County Recycling, and Becker County 4-H.
