Sock It to Me, the Portland-based designer and manufacturer of fun and funky socks for men, women and kids, is hosting its 7th Annual Design A Sock Contest to benefit the Arts in Portland’s Public High Schools. Portlanders of all ages and artistic abilities are invited to participate by submitting their unique sock design for consideration in Sock It to Me’s next collection. For each sock design submitted Sock It to Me will donate $1, with a maximum total donation of $15,000, as an Art Grant for Portland Public High Schools. In addition to helping out the schools, entrants will also have their chance to win $1000 cash and have their winning design manufactured and worn by Sock It to Me customers around the world.
Entrants can submit their unique design by downloading the design template here and submit their design electronically or mail it to the Sock It to Me office by 3pm on September 20th. On September 27th Sock It to Me will post the top 30 designs on their Facebook page and the public will vote for their favorite. So get cracking all of you would-be sock designers! I saw and voted on the finalists last year and I have to say there were some really creative ones.
