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 receive free registration to the 2013 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, California!
