Blue light reflected off the walls forming the shape of small droplets and recyclable materials were contorted into dresses worn by models who strutted down the runway at Catwalk for Water on Sunday at Aveda Institute of Baton Rouge.

The annual runway show is a scholarship competition for prospective students and promotes clean water awareness.

Aspiring cosmetologists from across the state had four hours to prep an outfit made of recyclable materials and to create a makeup and hair look using only Aveda products.

Walker High School student, Virginia Paz, won a full tuition scholarship to the Aveda Institute of Baton Rouge.

The prospective students who competed in the show were awarded $1,000 toward tuition if they decide to enroll in the school.

All proceeds raised during the event were donated to the Gulf Restoration Network and Lower Mississippi Riverkeeper, which are dedicated to preventing coastal erosion locally.
