Relay for Life Shirt Contest

posted Feb 26, 2018, 8:06 AM by Jessica Saunders
JB Watkins Cancer Kickin’ Coal Miners have come up with a great idea to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. We will be holding a contest for students, in grades K - 5 to create a design for our team t-shirts. Students will submit their design (following the parameters listed) for an opportunity to have their design chosen for the shirts. The winning design will be printed on, PRE-ORDERED t-shirts which be available for purchase to all of the JB Watkins community. Even if you’re not walking with us the night of the relay, buy a shirt! All proceeds will go directly to the American Cancer Society to further its mission to provide services to those battling cancer and find a cure for this insidious disease.

All design submissions must be turned in to Mrs. Williams by Monday March 5. Submissions will be evaluated during the week and the winning design will be announced on Friday, March 9th.

T-shirt order will open on Monday, March 12th and will run through Friday March 23.

The orders will be place the following week and as soon as the shirts are in, they will be distributed to the students who ordered them.

We are so excited to see all of the students, staff and family members proudly wear this shirt in support of the JBW Cancer Kickin’ Coal Miners!!

T-shirt Design Guidelines
  • Submission must be on a plain, white, sheet of 81/2” x 11” paper
  • Students may only use black + 2 colors to draw their picture. Color choice is up to the artist.
  • Since the shirt is to be used as our team t-shirt, it must say Relay for Life and the date, June 1, 2018, somewhere on the design.
  • As this shirt will represent our school team, anything that incorporates things specific to JB Watkins such as colors, mascot, school-wide expectations, etc. are encouraged.
  • When creating your design, please be mindful that this will be going on a T-shirt so very small details may not show up as well.
