Tis the season for t-shirt design contests. We let you know that CoGo Bike Share wants to see how your designs roll, and now the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board wants you to demonstrate the creativity and innovation of Ohioans through the Ohio Statehouse T-Shirt Design Contest. The Statehouse Museum Shop wants to find a unique, stand-out-from-the-crowd design that they can sell in the Museum Shop beginning this summer.

If you want to share the fruits of your designer genes, be sure to get your entry in by April 30. The T-Shirt Design Committee will review the entries and announce semi-finalists on May 5. All semi-finalist designs will be posted on the
Ohio Statehouse Facebook page, the Statehouse Museum Shop Facebook page and the Statehouse Museum Pinterest page, where visitors can “like” their favorites. The designs will also be on view in the Statehouse Museum Shop where visitors can cast their vote. All voting ends on May 23 and the committee will take into account the votes when choosing the winner, which will be announced on June 2.

If your design is ultimately chosen, you will receive a t-shirt with your design, a $25 gift card from the Statehouse Museum Shop and a private tour of the Ohio Statehouse, including the rarely-seen Cupola, for up to 10 people. Plus your design will be on sale in the Ohio Museum Shop starting this summer.
