Greenbelt Swim Team T-Shirt Design Contest!!

We need t-shirt designs and we need them now! Please show this email to your kids as the deadline is the first day of practice so they won’t hear it elsewhere. Yikes!

Time to get your crayons and your pencils! We want your kids’ designs for the 2017 Greenbelt Swim Team t-shirt. Designs need only include a drawing appropriate for the back of our team shirt. Our mascot is a barracuda. Our team’s abbreviation is “GM” for Greenbelt Municipal. A slogan is optional; feel free to reuse a slogan from previous years.

Designs should be submitted on a single sheet of paper. Print the swimmer’s name on the BACK of the sheet. One design may be submitted per swimmer. Please submit the design in the swim team mailbox behind the pool’s front desk. Alternatively, designs may be submitted electronically to Michael Cohen (cohen.michael AT gmail DOT com).

The final deadline is Tuesday May 30th at 6:00 PM. Michael will put together the entries received and display them at practice on June 1st (the day of the parent meeting, don’t miss it!). At this time the kids will have a chance to vote on which design they want! (More details on the voting that week.)
