125th Anniversary T-shirt Design Contest

Kappa Delta is celebrating our 125th anniversary on Oct 23, 2022. In honor of this milestone, we will be creating commemorative merchandise with a special design. But we want you to be a part of it by submitting your own unique designs!  

One winning design will be selected based on two rounds of voting. The member who submits the winning design will receive a $100 award and will be featured in the 125th celebration event. Design will be used across merchandise which will be available for purchase on the Kappa Delta Boutique site.
