Diversity Slogan Contest (2008)
The UMD Diversity Commission exists to celebrate and support diversity at UMD and to foster a welcoming climate for all students, faculty, and staff. To help promote our mission and message on campus, we sponsored a student T-shirt slogan contest to create a new slogan that would spark interest and dialogue.
We challenged UMD students to design a T-shirt message that celebrated diversity. The submissions could be a slogan/words, a visual image (drawing or graphic), or any combination of these. Out of 30 contest entries, one design was chosen.
Ryan Holmquist, a senior criminology major from Alexandria, Minnesota, won first prize of a $50 UMD Stores gift card for his design (see below).
This message will appear on T-shirts, buttons, and other Diversity Commission materials.
