WINNER CHOSEN FOR GREEN UH T-SHIRT CONTEST


Congratulations to David Delgado! Delgado created the winning design that will be displayed on the new Green UH T-shirts available for purchase at the UH Bookstore in April 2011. Along with the chance to showcase his work on the shirts, he also received a $100 gift card to Barnes and Noble.

“I haven’t really won anything before, therefore it feels a bit surreal to have won,” Delgado said. “It feels great to have my artwork appreciated and to have won something for it.”

The freshman business major said he felt the contest was a great opportunity to contribute to the Green UH organization and its cause. He said his family had each been involved in the arts at some point of their lives and grew up with art all around him.

The submissions were judged by the Sustainability Task Force and Delgado’s design came out on top. “Cougar Recycles a Can” will be shown in white print on a green Alta Gracia T-shirt available for purchase in sizes small to 2XL in time for Earth Day. Alta Gracia has committed to producing sweat-free apparel, providing workers with a sustainable standard of living and the opportunity to raise their families out of poverty.

Green UH hosted the contest to give students the opportunity to use their talent to promote the Green UH mission. All designs were required to meet specifications and incorporate the Green UH brand logo.
