T-Shirt Design Contest


The Figge offers a t-shirt design contest called the Figge Factory annually for high school students. Students are invited to enter the contest and submit their own design. The winner's design is featured on a Figge t-shirt and sold in the Museum Store. The aim of the contest is to engage teens in the field of art and design by tapping into the hipness of T-shirt and DIY culture. The student whose design is selected will receive a cash prize, free T-shirts and a silk-screening pizza party for the winner and three friends. The limited-edition artist T-shirts will be available for purchase in the Museum Store, with all proceeds benefiting next year's educational programs at the Figge. Check back soon for more details!
