Announcing the 2014 Croquet
Postcard/T-Shirt Design Contest!
Each year the Alumni Office creates a new postcard to announce the annual SJC vs. Navy Croquet Match (a.k.a. “The Annapolis Cup”) to our alumni—and the world. The postcard image—original artwork by a member of the college community—is then printed on hundreds of t-shirts worn by Johnnies, Midshipmen, and Townies. Imagine that you are this year’s featured artist!
To be considered, submit your original design/artwork to the Alumni Office no later than midnight, Wednesday, January 15, 2014. The contest is open to all members of the St. John’s College community (students, staff, faculty, alumni, parents, and friends). The winner will receive a reserved prime viewing area, with a picnic basket chock-full of festive goodies, at this year’s Croquet match
