The fashion show was to benefit the art departments at Kinston High, North Lenoir, South Lenoir and Arendell Parrott Academy.
Sixteen groups of four, with one person representing each school, competed. One person was the model and the other three people helped make an outfit made of 100 percent recycled materials such as newspaper, cardboard and plastic.
“It was a great turnout; many people came out to support,” said junior Eliza Deaver, who helped with the decorations and refreshments at the show.
Kinston High hosted Green Lamp’s Trike-A-Thon on March 25.
The Trike-A-Thon is an event for pre-schoolers to have fun while raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
There were many activities for the kids to do, such as jumping on a Moon Bounce, watching a puppet show, and, of course, riding tricycles.

I was starving, and so were the rest of the teenagers at Gordon Street Christian Church on Friday, April 1, and Saturday, April 2. We stopped eating at 1:30 p.m. on Friday and committed to an only juice and water diet until Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
Why would about a dozen or so kids subject themselves to starvation for over a day? We wanted to help prevent other children all over the world from feeling the hunger pains that we felt that weekend.
