About The Challenge
A touchdown is scored. The crowd erupts. Everyone divvies out high fives, low fives, and fist pumps. The Fighting Illini are fired up to inspire your design game!
Create an original t-shirt design inspired by the Fighting Illini, and U of I fans across the world could soon be wearing your tee for many victories to come! Stay true to Illinois blue and orange, and it's up to you if you want to use the logo. Also keep Native American imagery off your design, including the use of Chief Illiniwek or the term chief. So warm up those design muscles, crank up your fight song, and Go! Fight! Win! The chosen designs will be available at Threadless, and a portion of the sales from the selected design will go back to the University of Illinois. Go Illini!
You have until October 17 to submit designs. After that, we'll open voting on all designs for one week from October 18-25.
