Inside-Out T-Shirt Giveaway Contest

COMPETITION EXTENDED UNTIL SEPTEMBER 1, 12AM PST. Write about your Inside-Out experience AND have the chance to win an AWESOME t-shirt from the (Inter)National Inside-Out Center, courtesy of Oregon Inside-Out intern Jordan W. Here's Jordan's challenge:

Find a piece of art that best summarizes your Inside-Out experience, whether it is Raphael's Sistine Madonna, the graffiti art of Banksy or JR, or that song you listened to every week on the way to and from prison. Submit a statement of 300 words or less to describe why that art was so important to your experience. Be creative!

Have you created art inspired by your Inside-Out experience? Did you make a painting, compose a song, write a creative essay, story, poem, or anything else that can be considered "art" (however you want to define that)? Send it in with an short statement (200 words or less) describing why you made that art, what significance it has for you, and/or what you hope others get from it.

Submit your entries as comments to this post, or email them to by SUNDAY, Sept. 1 at midnight PST. The blog team will select a winning entry (maybe more than one) and we'll mail or hand deliver you a t-shirt (and you'll get major kudos on this blog). Entry is limited to students and instructors who took classes/taught in Oregon.
