We Need Your Creativity – 3rd Edition Phoenix PRIDE Shirt!

Get in on the creative end of the Phoenix PRIDE Shirt tradition. It doesn’t matter what field you graduated in, if you have an idea, we want to know about it!

Each year, a collectible, limited edition T-shirt that reflects UWGB spirit is created. Proceeds SUPPORT student scholarships.

The design choice is by popular electronic vote in September, to be unveiled at Alumni Days. A photo will be taken of all alumni in attendance wearing the 2015 Phoenix PRIDE Shirt. Because it’s UWGB’s 50th Anniversary, the shirt colors will represent a decade of graduates (i.e., forest green for 1970s grads, yellow for 1980s grads, etc.).

The winning designer receives a $50 gift card from The Phoenix Bookstore, admittance for two at 2015 Alumni Days, and a year of fame…being known as the awesome 3rd Edition Phoenix PRIDE Shirt Designer!

There are very few design restrictions:
One color, front- or back-only design (shirts will be printed in five colors to represent each decade of graduates)
Include a reference to UWGB/UW-Green Bay
Design should be relatable to UWGB alumni
Submit artwork in a pdf file format by Aug. 25 to alumni@uwgb.edu

An official logo is not required in the design, but can be requested by contacting Sue Bodilly, bodillys@uwgb.edu.
