As the global pandemic rages on, almost everyone is being forced to self-isolate at home. Schools have taken classrooms online and every teacher knows that it can be difficult to keep your students engaged during this time. We’re all going a little stir-crazy and your students are most likely looking for things to fill their time. You can go the extra mile for your class by organizing a t-shirt design contest with Out of the Blue! We’re putting our custom t-shirts in Denver to good use during this pandemic by hosting t-shirt design contests with local schools. With our support, you’ll be able to raise funds for your classroom and inspire your students at the same time.

Our School T-Shirt Design Contests

We’re proud to announce that Out of the Blue is hosting t-shirt design contests with local schools! When you partner with OTB, you can host a t-shirt design competition for your students who are learning virtually from home. Students need outlets for creative expression, now more than ever. This contest gives your students a creative opportunity during their self-isolation. A winning design will be selected by your school and it will then be sold on your very own virtual storefront, provided by Out of the Blue. As you sell custom t-shirts in Denver, a portion of those sales will be put towards your school or to a cause of your choice.

How The T-Shirt Design Competition Works

When you participate in an OTB school t-shirt design competition, we’ll handle the heavy lifting on our end. Our team of design experts will build an engaging digital contest announcement to send to your students. We can add in any design guidelines or restrictions that you might want to include, like no profanity or a specific design theme. From the comfort of their homes, your students will then develop their own custom designs for the contest.

Whether you want to select the winning design yourself or hold a class vote on the matter, the winner selection process is entirely up to you. Once the winning design is finalized, you’ll send it to us. At Out of the Blue, we’ll then build out a virtual storefront to sell your custom t-shirt design online. Your beautiful site will then be live for up to two weeks to receive online orders. Once all of the orders have come in, our design pros will print your custom t-shirts in Denver and then directly ship them to each customer.

While we handle the back-end logistics of the contest, the marketing process will fall to you. You’ll need to share the storefront via your school newsletter, virtual classrooms, social media, and across other mediums. The more marketing tactics you leverage, the more custom t-shirts you’ll sell and the more funds you raise for your school.

A Fantastic Fundraising Opportunity

Aside from inspiring your classroom with an engaging activity, you also reap fundraising rewards too. For each shirt that’s sold, you receive $10 for your classroom! If enough shirts are sold, you can end up generating an impressive amount of funds for your school. Once the orders are all completed, we’ll send you a check for all the funds that were raised during this contest.

You can put that money to good use for your classroom! From new school supplies to online resources, you have practically limitless options for how to use those funds. Your students will be thrilled to have new learning opportunities in the near future.

Alternatively, you can also donate those funds to the charitable cause of your choice. Local nonprofits and nationwide charities can put your generated funds to good use in a multitude of generous ways. With our custom t-shirts, you can make a strong impact for the greater good right now.

Over the past few months, we have witnessed the mounting impacts of the coronavirus. This global pandemic has forced many businesses to shut their doors, which is bad news for many small companies. In Colorado, Governor Jared Polis recently established a COVID-19 relief fund to help small businesses and other organizations during this trying time. At Out of the Blue, we wanted to do our part in supporting local communities as well. We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve officially launched an online shop to generate funds for the Colorado coronavirus relief fund.

How OTB Is Supporting Local Communities

In this trying time, it’s imperative that we all chip in and do our part for the greater good. At Out of the Blue, we knew that we could leverage our services to raise funds for this important COVID-19 relief fund. We can easily create virtual apparel stores for our clients and we decided to use that to our advantage. Our team has developed an online storefront to raise those crucial funds and give Colorado residents another opportunity to help our state’s recovery from this global crisis.

Through this virtual store, we are currently selling “Colorado Strong” t-shirts in a wide range of sizes. A portion of the proceeds from that virtual store will go directly to the Colorado COVID-19 relief fund. We’ve sweetened the deal even further, by providing a FREE silicone wristband with every t-shirt purchase. When you purchase one of these shirts, you’re supporting local communities while simultaneously receiving terrific merchandise. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved, especially those who need the financial support.

What Will The Proceeds Accomplish?

The guidelines of the Colorado COVID-19 relief fund are very specific and very generous simultaneously. As mentioned above, a portion of the proceeds from this online shop will go directly to the relief fund. Those proceeds will then be used to support state-wide initiatives across three major categories: prevention, impact, and recovery efforts.

The funds will be utilized efficiently to support things like making medical equipment, food services, small business support, childhood education, health services, and much more. Nonprofits, local governments, school districts, and small businesses in Colorado can receive financial support through this coronavirus relief fund. All they have to do is submit a grant application before the deadlines. In a short span of time, they’ll receive the funds they need to get through this crisis.

Every Little Bit Helps

At Out of the Blue, we are incredibly proud to be supporting local communities through this relief fund. We’re all living in a very uncertain time right now and people all across Colorado need your support. While there are plenty of ways to lend a helping hand, the state-wide “stay-at-home” order makes it difficult to show your support. Our virtual storefront can make that social responsibility a little bit easier for you.

Are you interested in showing your support for local Colorado communities? Then make the most of this situation with Out of the Blue! Head over to our virtual storefront today and show off your state pride with a “Colorado Strong” t-shirt.
