2017 NFB Youth Slam T-Shirt Contest

This summer, the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) will hold the tenth anniversary NFB Youth Slam, a weeklong science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) program. Through our NFB Youth Slams, we have transformed the lives of over 400 blind students by exposing them to the tools, nonvisual techniques, and confidence that make it possible for blind people to work and study in STEM disciplines.

The NFB is seeking artists who can capture the excitement and energy of our Youth Slam program and design our official 10th anniversary t-shirt. Your design should reflect the brand personality of the National Federation of the Blind: inviting, powerful, innovative, and inspirational. The winner will receive special recognition and a reward!
