Little Rock Fashion Week is accepting applications from students entering grades 1st through 12th for its Youth Fashion Sketch Design Competition. Applications can be downloaded at LittleRockFashionWeek.com.

The top designers from each level will be announced July 20th at LRFW's Young & Fabulous fashion show and July 21st at LRFW's Posh Expression fashion show which are being held at the Robinson Center Exhibition Hall.

Among other prizes, winners from each category will receive all-access and backstage passes for him or her and a guest to LRFW 2013 events, free consultation session about fashion designing, and meet LRFW staff.
