Kingfish Announce 2016 Aurora Health Care Jersey Design Contest
Kenosha, Wis. – The Kenosha Kingfish are searching for artistic area students to design the 2016 road and alternate jersey. The Kingfish are reaching out to Kenosha Area Middle Schools and High Schools in hopes that their students will participate in the competition. The jersey will be worn as a road jersey and home alternate in 2016 and auctioned off during the final home game of the season. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the Aurora Health Care Foundation.
Over 400 students in the greater Kenosha area participated in the jersey design contest in 2015. Nick Abate from Christian Life School was the contest winner and his design inspired the look for the 2015 Kingfish alternate jersey. The Kingfish wore the stylish jerseys for all 36 road games and as an alternate uniform during select home games. The 2015 jersey auction raised $4,096 for the Aurora Health Care Foundation.
In order to be considered, participants must follow the guidelines below:
1. The Kingfish will accept any of the following design samples: computer designs (preferred), paint, crayons, colored pencils, markers and any other way students can convey their concepts.
2. The deadline for all participants is December 4, 2015. The school or students can send their submissions via email, mail, fax or in person at Simmons Field.
