Project Gulf Coast T-shirt Contest

Design a T-shirt, Vote for Your Favorite, Help the Environment

As the Gulf oil spill fades from national memory, the media coverage has died down. However, the people, communities, and businesses along the Gulf Coast are still struggling to receive their claims and regain their livelihood. We want to show our support for them. And, most importantly, we want to help ensure these naturally beautiful beaches, coastal marshes, and other areas are around for generations to come, both as the home for amazing wildlife and as wonderful places to visit.
You can help by either:
  1. Submitting a T-shirt design (you could win $800 in cash and prizes) or
  2. Signing up your non-profit, Gulf Coast organization as a participating non-profit (50% of the winning T-shirt purchases will go back to your organization) and/or
  3. Voting for your favorite design and purchasing the winning design later. T-shirt art submissions will run 10/01/10-10/31/10. Voting will take place 11/01/10-11/15/10. The T-shirt will be on the site for sale late November 2010.  Please sign in at so we may notify you when the shirt goes on sale.

Let’s raise some money and some awareness for the beautiful Gulf Coast!
