Each designer will be given $125 to shop for garments and materials at Goodwill stores, then they must create six different designs made from those up-cycled garments. Participants will have five models to showcase their designs, and Goodwill will provide an additional model.

The first place winner will be awarded $500, with $200 going to second place.

“This is our 4th year, and we expect another standing-room-only crowd at The Orange Peel”, said Ms. Eichorn. “In addition to the popularity of our competition, ‘Color Me Goodwill’ also reminds everyone that they can find great bargains at Goodwill stores, which, in turn, helps to support our workforce development programs.”
