Design our new T-shirt, win a $1,000 scholarship

2013 Summer Session T-shirt design contestIf you have skills as a designer or simply like to doodle, then you could be the artist who designs this year's OSU Summer Session T-shirt – and wins a $1,000 summer scholarship in the process.

We're excited to launch our 2014 T-shirt design contest, which is open to all current OSU students. Put your talent to the test and design artwork that could be worn all over campus by your friends and classmates.

Summer Session is accepting digital submissions now through April 25. Each student will be able to submit up to three designs. The design must be your own original, unpublished work and must not include any third-party logos or copyrighted material.

Read all contest rules

Finalists will be posted to the Summer Session website for voting, which will take place from April 30 to May 9. The winning design will be announced May 13. The student who wins will earn a $1,000 scholarship toward credit-based, on-campus classes in Corvallis or the Hatfield Marine Science Center this summer.

Best of luck!

Have the best burger recipe at OSU? It could earn you a $500 scholarship 

We want you to create something that is as much a part of summer as the sun: a delicious burger.

OSU Summer Session partnered with Red Fox Cafe, the newest and coolest eatery on Monroe Avenue, to host the second annual Best Burger Contest, giving you the ability to showcase your culinary talents for the whole town to taste.  Red Fox Cafe features hand-made, slow-cooked breakfast, lunch and dinners.  

How does it work? Starting April 28, you can submit your favorite burger recipe(s) on our website, and then a panel of culinary experts from Red Fox Cafe and OSU will review all the recipes.

The top five will be tested in a cook-off at Red Fox in May. The grand-prize winner will receive a $500 scholarship toward Corvallis-campus OSU classes this summer, and their burger will be featured on the Red Fox menu this summer.

Runners-up will receive a $20 gift card to Red Fox Cafe.


More contests and unique scholarship opportunities will be announced in the coming months. If you have any questions about OSU Summer Session contests, contact us at 800-375-9359 or
