On October 13th, 2021 Mrs. Schoenwetter took her Design class to the annual USD 350 St. John High School, Trash to Trends competition at the Stafford County Annex. Where they competed against 5 other schools. They won 2nd and 8th place and overall as a team they placed 2nd.

Aligned with their Fashion Unit, the students worked together in teams of three to create wearable dresses or suits using only recycled or upcycled materials to compete. After working on their outfits for a couple of days in class, students were given 4 hours to complete them before the competition began.
