Green Dot T-shirt Design Contest

Green Dot UVA and the University Bookstore are partnering to host the second annual T-shirt design competition. Submissions should be creative and encompass the Green Dot message. Design submissions will be accepted from January 30 to February 26, 2017. The winning T-shirt will be sold and displayed in the Bookstore and online beginning April 14, 2017, for the remainder of the calendar year or until supplies run out. Any proceeds from T-shirt sales will support the Green Dot initiative at UVA.


The winner will be featured in the T-shirt display and receive a $50 gift card to the UVA Bookstore.

Designs will be assessed by their ability to clearly and concisely reflect the Green Dot program’s two core principles: 1) violence is not tolerated, and 2) it is everyone’s responsibility to maintain a safe environment. The winning design will be determined by anonymous scorecards submitted by the committee.
