Stanford Global Studies T-shirt Design Contest

SGS t-shirt design contest

Express what global studies means to you,
in the form of a t-shirt design!

SGS encompasses a number of world regions and global themes, and a diverse group of students and scholars from across disciplines, each with a unique perspective. We are looking for fresh and unique t-shirt design that captures what global studies is to you.

The winning design will be printed as the official SGS t-shirt for the 2017-18 school year.

Who can enter?

Any student, faculty, staff, or community member of a SGS program or center.

Design requirements

  • Image must be no larger than 8.5 x 11 inches
  • Design must not incorporate any form of the Stanford indicia, such as the Stanford wordmark, tree, or department signature
  • Design must not contain any copyrighted material and must be your original artwork
  • We will accept digital vector art only, submitted as a print-quality pdf file


Three finalists will be selected. From the finalists a winner will be chosen and that artwork will be used for the SGS t-shirt for the 2017-18 year.

Each finalist will receive a $50 award and a free t-shirt. The grand prize winner will be awarded an additional $100.
