Kingfish Announce 2017 Aurora Health Care Jersey Design Contest
Kenosha, Wis. – The Kenosha Kingfish are searching for artistic area students to design the 2017 road and alternate jersey. The Kingfish welcome Kenosha area middle school and high school students to participate in the competition. The jersey will be worn as a road jersey and home alternate in 2017 and auctioned off at the end of the season. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the Aurora Health Care Foundation.
Over 200 students in the greater Kenosha area participated in the jersey design contest in 2016. Quinn, Jaden and Elinor from All Saints Catholic School were the contest winners, as their designs were the inspiration for the 2016 Kingfish alternate jersey.
