Lands' End "Every Tee Tells a Story" Design Contest

Since boy's and girl's graphic tees are most likely on everyone's back-to-school shopping list, the Every Tee Tells a Story Contest hosted by Lands' End is well-timed. Through September 7th, children between the ages of 4 to 11 may submit their artwork for a graphic tee design centered around the theme "Arctic Exploration". There will be two winners for this contest . . . one boy and one girl. Each winner will have their design featured on a Lands' End graphic tee, receive a $500 Lands' End gift card, and a $1,000 donation to their school's art program.

To top it all off, Lands' End will donate $1 towards an art-related project on . They are willing to donate up to $10,000 to these worthy projects for under-funded schools. So even if your child does not win this contest, in addition to the fun challenge of designing a t-shirt, his or her submission will be helping to fund art supplies and equipment for schools all around the country. To enter, just download this PDF entry form and template. Your child's entry must be submitted by snail mail and needs to be postmarked by September 7th, 2010. Click here for official contest rules.

My son was able to choose any Lands' End graphic tee and he opted for the National Treasures NYC Graphic T-Shirt. He had just accompanied my husband and myself to New York for the BlogHer 2010 convention and New York City left quite a positive impression on him. He loves his new t-shirt because it is so soft. I love it because it is a nice quality weight, 100% washable cotton, and tagless.
