2020 Study Abroad T-Shirt Design Contest

This year, we are calling on all creative KSU students to submit their own custom artwork for our Study Abroad t-shirts.

All designs submissions are due by May 22, 2020. We will not accept any designs after this date. Students will submit their designs to globalaffairs@kennesaw.edu. Please include your name, class standing and major when submitting your designs.

Once we have all the designs we will choose our top two favorites and have you (the students) decide on your favorite!
