We're excited to announce our 2013 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 26. Each student can 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The design must be your own original, unpublished work and must not include any third-party logos or copyrighted material. Finalists will be posted to the Summer Session website for voting, which will take place online from April 29 to May 9.

The winning design will be announced May 13, and the winner will earn a $1,000 scholarship toward credit, Corvallis-campus classes this summer.

Please read all contest rules carefully before submitting your design(s), and best of luck!
