Senior Jase Brandt won the Student Government Association’s homecoming T-shirt design contest.
Nine designs were entered into the contest before being sent to the student body to vote the favorite ones.
Then, after the top two designs were chosen, they were voted upon again.
Brandt said he was happy to win, but he said he almost didn’t submit an entry.
“I’ve never entered the homecoming T-shirt contest before,” he said. “I had a friend who thought I’d submit a good design. It had crossed my mind before, but I probably wouldn’t have made a submission had he not encouraged me to.”
SGA Office Manager senior Ezekiel Lacey said the T-shirt design contest is a tradition that has carried on for years.
“As long as I have been here, they have done the T-shirt design contest,” he said. “So we thought it would be good to keep the tradition going. It is also a great opportunity for the students and SGA to interact early in the year.”
The winning T-shirt idea came from Brandt’s everyday life.
“For the design, I was inspired by several things and put them together, namely website elements and other T-shirt patterns,” he said. “I like to make note of things I find interesting in whatever material I come across and put them together as parts of my own collective design.”
