Miss Karen Snyder, 15-year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Snyder of Dale, won a trophy for first place, plus a $25 gift certificate, in a “Dress to Impress” competition held recently at Washington Square Mall in Evansville. She was one of three finalists. Karen is a sophomore at Heritage Hills High School and one of the Patriot cheerleaders.
Three other Dale area girls took top honors among the 18 girls competing in the fashion show, sponsored by Purdue University extension service.
They were judged by fashion coordinators on how they selected their outfits according to their personality, age and the occasion for which the outfit was chosen. Runners-up who received gift certificates from the participating stores were: Liz Onyett, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Onyett, and Sarah Childress, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Childress of Dale, and Sabrina Haake, daughter of Mrs. Robert Hyde of Christmas Lake Village.
Mrs. Hyde, formerly of Dale, was the modeling instructor and commentator for the show. Miss Dubois County, Debbie Wahl of Huntingburg, was a special guest at the fashion show.
