Augustana College is pleased to announce the 2013 Good Fit T-shirt photo contest winners.

In the Good Fit contest, first-year students are eligible to win one of five $1,000 scholarships to Augustana. For their photos, students must wear the Augustana T-shirt they received when visiting campus. Almost 100 entries were received for the 2013 contest. All the clever photos and captions can be viewed on the Good Fit web page. In addition to the People’s Choice Award, other categories in the photo contest include: "Action Shot", "In a Famous Location", "At Another College" and "With An Alumnus."

The Good Fit T-shirt competition is a fun way Augustana can get to know the potential members of its incoming class while spreading the word about Augustana College at the same time.

"This year has been especially fun as the top three leaders of the People's Choice category combined have over 25,000 votes!" said Meghan Cooley, director of recruitment communications and a 1999 Augustana graduate. "One is a magician that mobilized the magic community across the U.S. and one has an incredible extended family with votes from as far as Ireland and Dubai.

"We're energized by the creativity of our incoming class and excited to have so many people exposed to Augustana College and our website,"

Also, Augustana representatives were so impressed with the creativity of one particular photo a new category was added for the year: "Best in Show." The winners of the six categories are awarded a one-year $1,000 scholarship should they choose to attend Augustana College.
