Below are the rules and other information you need to create and submit your entry for the contest. Even if you don’t submit a design you can still play a very important role by helping select the winning design! The winner will be decided by an online form in which each neighbor can make a selection. The design with the most votes wins! The T-shirt will be available at the summer picnic for a suggested donation of $15.00.

  • Your design must be inspired by our diverse and beautiful neighborhood Woolen Mills
