This event is all about promoting class pride and student involvement. We want YOU to be a part of the process! Whether you're an artist or not, we encourage all students to participate. The competition will take place from May 1st to May 7th, giving you plenty of time to come up with your best design.

The winning design will be featured on a limited edition Class of 2026 merch item and the winner will receive a free Class T-Shirt for next year! 

So, get creative! Remember, the design must be based on our class mascot which is the black and gold tigers. You can create your design on paper or through the custom ink website, both of which can be found on the handout provided during STARS.
