Rules of design contest

We are excited to announce that the 2022 CS Department’s first Swag Art Contest is now open for submissions!

We are looking for artwork made by HMC CS students that is a fun representation of being a CS student! It can be anything of your design that encapsulates your experiences at Mudd and is a nod to the CS department.

Thank you to Richard Chang for bringing to our attention the interest of the HMC CS student body!

We will be voting on one design to go on all of our swag merch.

The winner of the contest will have their artwork featured on a mug, t-shirt, and hoodie. They will also receive one item of their choice as a prize.

The products will be available for students to purchase after voting is concluded.
