Augustana T-shirt Photo Contest

The award winning, Good Fit T-shirt photo contest invites students to express their creativity for a chance to win a scholarship.

The contest is for prospective students planning to enroll in the fall of 2020 (seniors in high school or transfer students currently enrolled at another institution). Photo submissions will be accepted beginning January 1, 2020. The last day to submit a photo is January 20, and voting will continue until January 31. Winners will be announced during the week of February 3.

Students wear an Augustana T-shirt (provided to campus visitors — though any Augustana shirt will work) and take a photo to submit in one of four categories. Category winners are chosen by admissions staff, student ambassadors and other college personnel. First-place winners in each category win a $2,000 scholarship. A runner-up in each category will win a $1,000 scholarship.

A $2,500 award is also available in the people's choice category based on votes by the general population. Last year the winner received almost 5,000 votes!

Good Fit scholarships are one-time awards and are not renewable.

It's University of Wisconsin tradition to sit on Abe's lap when you graduate- since I'm not following in my mom's badger footsteps (to her chagrin) by choosing Augie, I figured I'd let her see me up there in blue and gold.

Did you "snow" that the Mississippi River banks near Augustana are a popular destination for year round mountain biking? In fact, Sylvan Island trails are just minutes away from campus! That's another reason Augustana is a great fit for me!
