Hey students - use your creativity to design a T-shirt that will be purchased for every Cougar!


All T-shirt designs submitted should reflect the Canty Community Pillars:

Inclusivity: Open your heart to others!

Citizenship: Become the leaders of tomorrow!

Perseverance: Reach for the sky!

Trustworthiness: Grow the trust others place in you!

Kindness: Treat others the way you want to be treated!


In order for the design to be scanned correctly, it should be a black and white image using a Sharpie to draw or trace over pencil lines. The design should also be made oversized to fill at least an 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper so that the image can be scaled to fit without compromising the details of the design. Designs will be voted on by the entire Canty community including students, teachers, staff, and families! Once the winning design is chosen and scanned by the vendor, the winning designer will be able to choose up to two colors to fill in portions of the design!


Not only will the winner have their design on a shirt that will be purchased for every Cougar, but 1st place also will receive a $50 Visa gift card. Plus, two runners up will also receive a $25 Visa gift card EACH!


Designs must be submitted to the student's homeroom teacher by Friday, October 14th, 2022.
