Enter the Glad Tidings Summer T-shirt Contest!

It’s time to design a T-shirt for the 2022 Summer Camp and you can be apart of the fun! Design a cool t-shirt, send it in, and it could end up being on our summer t-shirts and worn all over camp. Here's how to enter!

Glad Tidings - T-shirt Design Contest

This year, our camp theme is just one word; "Awake". Kids today are growing up in today's crazy, "woke", and post-modern world where objective reality is being deconstructed. Soon, perhaps, even a green shirt could be identified as an orange one based simply on a person's feelings. We desire to counter this by helping campers understand they are dead to their new lives and now alive to Christ! Ephesians 5:14 says, "Awake, O Sleeper, rise up from the dead, and Christ will give you light." This encouragement is surrounded by encouragements to not "be fooled" (v6), to "live as people of light" (v8) for this produces what is "good and right and true" (v9), to "be careful how you live - like those who are wise" (v15). We desire to lead them into truth, help them wake up, and give them the tools to live in a way that pleases the Lord (v10)!

Generally, we have been trying to put the verse/s on the back of the shirts.

So, be creative! Think "AWAKE". Think about our priorities. Then come up with your own, unique, cool design (or multiple ones, if you would like) and share it with us.

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.

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.

We look forward to seeing your entry!
