What Not to Wear: 4-H U Edition
What Not to Wear: Casual
Casual dress for travel, free time on campus, and the Tuesday night assembly does not include overly short shorts or ripped/holey jeans. Shorts length must not exceed six inches above the floor when in a kneeling position nor two inches below the top of the knee when in a standing position. They also cannot be worn lower than the top of the hipbone.
What Not to Wear: Professional Casual
Delegates should dress neatly and conservatively for professional casual. Acceptable attire for guys includes slacks, shirts without ties, dress shoes, boots, or clean tennis shoes. Girls should wear skirts or slacks with an appropriate blouse or shirt. Dress denim (denim skirts and pressed jeans) and khakis as well as clean tennis shoes are allowed. Skirts must be 4 inches above the knee or longer. Professional casual is used for some contests and educational programs. Dress to make a good impression!
What Not to Wear: Semi-Formal
The Thursday night assembly is the culmination of an exciting week and the only semi-formal occasion during 4-H University. Girls can wear dresses or skirts 4 inches above the knee or longer, dress slacks, and appropriate shoes. Attire for guys includes dress slacks with a shirt and tie, a jacket or sweater, leather shoes, and boots. Athletic shoes are not acceptable for either group.
The dress code is not the easiest thing to enforce, but will become more so if everyone is consistent. We are looking forward to a great week of 4-H University with well-dressed delegates!
