Essay Contest

This contest has ended, please keep an eye on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter feeds for the next one.

When you see your own reflection, you don't see a kid... you see someone strong enough to make a difference! Tell us why you see STRONG in the mirror for a chance to win two free PrimeMeTees, one for you and one for the strongest person you know.

What is a PrimeMeTee?

In psychology, a "prime" is anything that triggers a thought in your mind, and these shirts are designed to remind you exactly who you are at just the right moment... when you see your own reflection. Learn more about the science.
