Heartland Design Contest

Each quarter we want to showcase the art and design talents of Heartland's students. We will select the best design of the submissions and create a t-shirt with the winning design and post it on the site for purchase. The winner will receive a free shirt of their design and be posted in the Heartland Spirit Designer hall fame for the school year. 

The next design contest submittal deadline is coming soon.

Contest Theme: Schools Out!

Guidelines and rules:

  • Designs must be original creation of the student.

  • The design will be printed directly to the t-shirt so there are no limits on colors or complexity. Drawings, artistic photographs, watercolor paintings, and computer graphic designs are all acceptable.

  • Art will be printed on chest of shirt.

  • Design does not need to be presented on a t-shirt because our designer will do the necessary conversions for t-shirt printing.  

  • Student must be currently enrolled in Heartland Charter School to participate. 

  • Winner will be notified via email. 

  • Must have parent's or guardian's permission to enter the contest.  

  • Acceptable file formats: PNG, JPEG

  • One submission per person, per quarter

  • Bonus points will be awarded to designs that incorporated Heartland Charter school name or logo.
