Bloomsday Finisher Shirt Design Contest

Lilac Bloomsday Association brings to you Bloomsday 2022 Finisher Shirt Design Contest which is being presented and sponsored by Washington Trust Bank. The following contest asks you to submit your creative and unique shirt designs to the given address and the most deserving one out of them will be awarded the one-time scholarship amount of $1,000.

The candidate with the best design will also have the opportunity to work with Bloomsday in adapting their design to the color of the finisher shirt. Also, one thing to remember is that Bloomsday has a tradition of not revealing the T-shirt color or design before the official announcement. Therefore it is very well expected from the winner to not reveal that his or her design has been selected by Bloomsday. If anyone fails to do so he will have to return the money paid to him back to the Bloomsday Association.

The Lilac Bloomsday Association is a non-profit organization that works for promoting long-distance runs and physical fitness. The association headquartered in Spokane, Washington was officially formed after the first Lilac Bloomsday run in 1977. The Lilac Bloomsday run is known as one of the world’s largest running events with over 27,000 finishers and around 200 volunteers.
