Enter Our T-shirt Contest!

It’s time to design a T-shirt for the 2019 Summer Camp! And, you can be a part of the fun! Design a cool t-shirt, send it in, and it could end up being on our summer t-shirts all over camp. Here's how to enter!

Glad Tidings - T-shirt Design Contest

This year’s theme is going to be “Game Changer” and will focus on how Jesus’ teachings were very different from what had been heard before. He challenged his listeners to rethink many things about life, God, and relating to others around them to the point of being a "Game Changer!" In connection with this, will be playing lots of games at camp - board games, outdoor games, large size games ... games of all kinds. And, we would like the t-shirt to reflect both the spiritual and board game concepts.

At this point, we are still deciding on a theme verse. Generally, we have been trying to put the verse on the back of the shirts. So, if you would like, you're welcome to create a design for the back and just put John 3:16 on it for now.

So, be creative! Think about your favorite game – maybe go play one or two rounds! Think about how you might convey how Jesus’ teachings were so radical that they changed the game. Then, come up with your own, unique, cool design (or multiple ones, if you would like) and share it with us – the sooner, the better because everyone applying to be on summer staff gets to vote on the design they think is coolest. The earlier you submit your design, the more people will see it and be able to vote on it. The winning design will be chosen by May 15th and will be featured on the summer T-shirt.

Each design must include; 1) Either "Glad Tidings Bible Camp", "GTBC", or the camp Logo, and 2) the year.
Designing the back is not necessary, but if you want to do this, it must include; 1) "Staff" in a separate text block, and 2) the theme verse (unless this is included on the front). If you would like the camp logo image file, email your request to the camp.

The sooner you send it in, the better because everyone applying to be on summer staff gets to vote on the design they think is coolest. The earlier you submit your design, the more people will see it and be able to vote on it. The winning design will be chosen by May 1st and will be featured on the summer T-shirt.

Additionally, this year we want to "incentivize" this contest by finding a way to make a one-of-a-kind version of the winning shirt just for the designer. This is open to suggestions and details will be determined later.
