Augustana T-shirt Photo Contest

The award-winning Good Fit T-Shirt photo contest invites students to express their creativity and Augustana pride for a chance to win one of 9 scholarships.

The contest is for prospective students who plan to enroll in the fall of 2021—seniors in high school or transfer students currently enrolled at another institution. Photo submissions will be accepted Jan. 1 - Jan. 31, 2021. Voting is open for all of January, so the sooner you submit your photo the sooner you can start collecting votes for the People’s Choice award!

A change for 2021

In years past we’ve asked students to submit photos of themselves wearing an Augustana t-shirt in one of several categories, like famous location, action shot or with an alum. But we know that the COVID-19 pandemic has made some of these categories unsafe or unrealistic.

This year, we’re looking to students like you to show us how creatively you can demonstrate your enthusiasm for Augustana in a photo or video (yes, you can send us a TikTok), with or without an Augustana t-shirt.

If you’d like a t-shirt to use for your photo submission, call us at 309-794-7341 by Dec. 21, 2020.

How to enter

Submit a photo demonstrating your Augustana pride, creativity and individuality. Students aren’t required to wear an Augustana t-shirt, but each photo must include something related to Augustana College, like the logo, mascot or even an acceptance letter. Be creative!

How to win

1 People’s Choice Award for the photo that receives the most votes from the general population - $2,500
4 Winning photos - $2,000 each
4 Runners up - $1,000 each

Winners and runners up will be chosen by admissions staff, student ambassadors and other college personnel based on how well the submission demonstrates the Augustana spirit and Viking Pride despite the challenges of COVID-19.

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!
