Engineers Without Borders at Montana State University, a student-run organization that provides clean water to schools in Kenya, will hold its fifth annual recycled fashion show, "Junk 2 Funk," at 7 p.m. Friday, April 5, at the Best Western Grantree Inn in Bozeman.

At the fashion show, students, community members and families will parade their outfits constructed out of recycled items ranging from milk jugs to inflatable pool toys. People attending the event are encouraged to wear their own homespun creations. Music will be provided by a disc jockey. Prizes for best outfits will be awarded.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets for students are $5 in advance or $7 at the door. Tickets for non-students are $7 in advance or $9 at the door. Tickets can be purchased from EWB members or from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday, April 2, and Thursday, April 4, at a table near the entrance to the Union Market in the SUB.

All event proceeds will benefit MSU EWB students' volunteer-led work in rural western Kenya. Since 2004, more than 100 MSU students from many disciplines and majors have traveled to Khwisero District of Kenya, where they have built eight deep-water wells and 11 composting latrines in an effort to decrease the rate of waterborne illnesses.
