TShirt Contest - Coastal Carolina University

Chanticleer T-Shirt Design Competition

While next football season may feel like a long way away, it will be here before we know it!

Next season, the Office of Student Life will be promoting a teal-out and a white-out game in addition to Homecoming. With each game, fans will be encouraged to wear that color, but we will also be selling the official shirts for those games.

. This is where we need your help… The designs for both the teal-out experience and white-out experience will be different, and we want students to create one of the designs. Show your pride and use your creativity to design something that reflects Coastal Carolina University to you.

The winner will be named in late spring and will receive the t-shirt pack for free along with your design on everyone’s shirt.
