Padgett constructed her competition ensemble for the State Congress Competiton. She designed a black fitted skirt with an invisible zipper, red sleeveless blouse, black jacket with lined sleeves, pockets and a button.

The competition was judged on an oral presentation, appearance/fit of the garment and responses to the judge’s questions, which represented 80% of total score. Self-confidence, poise, movement and modeling in the public fashion show represented 20% of total score.

In addition to sewing, she has competed in various cooking competitions with 4-H at the State level as well as being a member of the Decatur County 4-H Archery team for 8 years. During her senior year of high school Padgett was elected to the Georgia 4-H State Board of Directors where she served as the Southwest Georgia Representative.
