2017 T-Shirt Design Contest

Society of Ohio Archivists
2017 T-Shirt Design Contest

Wear your love for SOA on your sleeve! Or your front, or your back, it’s up to you!

The Advocacy & Outreach Committee is looking for a few creative people to submit their designs for an SOA t-shirt design contest.

Between now and April 3, 2017, the Advocacy & Outreach Committee will be accepting submissions for t-shirt designs.  SOA members will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite design between April 17th and April 28th, 2017.

The winning design will be announced in early May and t-shirts would be available for purchase on the SOA website and a few will be available for sale at the Spring meeting.

The winning artist will not only win bragging rights to having their design featured on an SOA t-shirt, they will also win a free annual SOA membership, a story in the Ohio Archivist, and a free t-shirt!
