Student T-Shirt Design Contest

Style is not an art form, but a science!  Show off your awesome graphic design talents by creating a one-of-a-kind T-shirt with an Earth or space theme.  The winning design will appear on T-shirts sold at Fall Meeting and proceeds will be donated to the Student Travel Grant Fund.  If your clever, funny or stylish design is the winner, you will also receive free registration to the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, California! Enter by 1 September.
