KALAMAZOO, Michigan – The Kalamazoo Wings, in partnership with Discover Kalamazoo, is hosting a design competition to benefit the Day One Footwear Fund, according to a representative of the hockey team.
Fans are invited to design a jersey related to the “Kalamazoo” theme of the contest that will be worn by players on December 31 during a game against the Tulsa Oilers.
The deadline for submission is Friday July 30.
Once the top 10 designs have been determined by Kalamazoo Wings staff members, the remaining nominations will be voted on by Wings social media subscribers from August 2-10, according to the Kalamazoo Wings.
The winner is expected to be revealed on Friday August 20.
Participants are each invited to create a dark color design that is original and does not use current or former Kalamazoo Wings logos, according to the organizers. Entries should be submitted to [email protected] in a standard file format, such as JPG, TIFF, or PDF, and tagged with the participant’s full name and phone number. The subject line of the email should include the participant’s full name followed by “Kalamazoo Wings Jersey Contest”.
Jersey templates can be downloaded here.
We’re told the winner will receive a personalized jersey, tickets to the game on December 31, the Kalamazoo Wings Fan Experience, and will be the designated dropper on December 31.
