Model Bar Refaeli led a panel of judges at a recent fashion competition that provided funds for the development of high school fashion programs.

Four schools competed for the top prize of $5,000. The winner, Fountain Valley High School, will use the funds to support its art and music program. A special design challenge was won by Gahr High School whose design may be featured in a future Hurley collection.
Hurley, a youth brand founded in 1999 and inspired by surf, skate, art, music and beach cultures, launched the competition.
During the event the company also announced the Microphone for Youth global t-shirt design competition. Aspiring young designers may submit their entries on the company''s website where the public will be able to vote for their favorite project. The winning design will be awarded $5,000 and become part of Hurley''s collection available at its online store.
Refaeli, meanwhile, will also choose her favorite design and its author will be invited to Los Angeles in June to attend Walk the Walk Grand Championship.
