Please be aware of the price point for each item. We cannot know the exact price until the design is established, but know that each one gets more expensive. This is not an individual order; the majority rules as to what type of top we will order. These will have to be purchased. If you have an opinion, please fill this out so we can know what you want as students. Thank you.

As a Horticulture Department, we want to have a casual t-shirt that all horticulture students can wear for special events, field trips or just to classes to advertise for the department. The best way to do this is to put it in your hands. If you want to participate, here are the things you need to know.
--The front of the t-shirts will look like this (below) with the BYU-Idaho logo and Horticulture underneath. What you are in charge of designing is the back.
--The designs must be appropriate as we are representing the school as well as the department. Inappropriate or suggestive designs will be thrown out of the competition.
--The back can be funny, witty, creative, serious and everything in between. It can have visuals as well as words. We will only print in one color however so keep that in mind.
--Also, remember that our department colors are green and black, if that influences anything you do.
--The more submissions the better.
--February 5th is the deadline to get your designs submitted to email@example.com.
--Voting will be open to the students from February 8th-12th.
--Use the picture below to design on so all of the submissions will be uniform and make sure that when you are done, to have the photo as a .jpg so it can be uploaded onto this blog for voting.
--Any other questions, you can filter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
--Good luck and have fun!

Our aim for the Department of Horticulture at Brigham Young University-Idaho is to nurture understanding of both the art and science of Horticulture. Students learn experimentally in the classroom, laboratory, greenhouse, and ten acre Thomas E. Ricks demonstration garden as they pursue an Associates or Bachelors Degree. Using the medium of plants, students develop habits of hard work, enlightened minds, and healthy living that assist in gainful employment opportunitues.
