1. What is the T-Shirt Competition?

The Project is an element introduced in the 2014 Youth Spiritual Competition.

Given the overwhelmingly creative T-shirts each church has created for each competition over the years, this project has become a competition favorite.

For YSC 2022, the T-Shirt Competition will be an individual competition

2. What is the Purpose?

The purpose of this element is for YSC Participants to express themselves in a fun manner, to outwardly and literally “wear their faith on their sleeves.”

3. What Do We Win?

The Project is an additional element to the overall Youth Spiritual Competition. This is a sub-competition: the top winner will be selected from the competition pool. The Winning T-Shirt design will also be showcased online.

The grand prize winner’s design will be featured as the YSC 2022 Official T-Shirt.

It will be showcased online.

4. What are the Rules?

  1. The shirt/design must be inclusive to ALL YSC participants! Remember that this is a YSC shirt and not a team shirt. Therefore, the name of your church, any team members, coaches, or participants are prohibited.
  2. The shirt design can be created by ANY INDIVIDUAL from your church and there is NO LIMIT to the number of submissions per church or per individual.
