A University of Arkansas student won a national apparel design contest.

U of A senior Lily Hay beat out students from five other universities in the second annual Student Design League competition. The competition was to see which college could create the best T-shirt design by receiving the most votes.

Schools in the competition included West Virginia University, Auburn University, the University of Alabama, the University of Tennessee and Florida State University.

The U of A’s designs garnered 3,743 of the total 14,322 votes. Hay created the competition’s overall top design.

“I wanted to design a T-shirt that students, faculty, alumni and fans would be proud to wear,” Hay said. “I also wanted to stick true to my style and design something I would like to wear.”

Hay’s design is a U of A cardinal red with white and black lettering that simultaneously spell “feel” and “Fayetteville.” The design also includes a square graphic with the 1871 founding date, a running hog logo, the university’s name and location.

Hay is now in the running to win one of two paid internships in New York City with Robin-Ruth. Hay will be partnering with Robin-Ruth to develop a collection of shirts and other back-to-school merchandise for the 2017 school year.
