There will once again be an award for the best Science Olympiad T-shirt at the State Competition.  The best shirts will be graphically interesting, specific to the Science Olympiad, individualized, specific for this year, intellectually clever, and meaningful to the team.  Any member of the team should be able to explain the significance of the shirt.  Note that clever does not mean suggestively off-color.

If you wish to enter this year’s T-shirt competition, please email a single photo, showing both back and front of the shirt in the same picture, to Jamie Cucinotta at : jcucinotta@newyorkscioly.org

Pictures must be in jpg format, and under 250K in size.  The subject line of the email should contain the name of the school.  All photos must be received by Sunday, April 2nd.
