Do you have a new idea for what the Rivermen jersey should look like? Have you always wanted to take a crack at giving the Rivermen a new logo? Do you like the Rivermen jerseys but would love to see a few things changed? This is that chance!
From now until August 1, 2012 the Rivermen are accepting designs for fans to design a Rivermen jersey to be worn during a game in the 2012-13 season. The winning designer will be rewarded with a customized version of their jersey, public recognition, as well as four tickets to the game in which the jerseys will be worn.
This contest is open to fans here in Peoria and all over the world. All you have to do is submit your jersey design via email to firstname.lastname@example.org before Aug. 1. They can be designed on a computer or drawn by hand. Every entry will be considered. From those submissions, the Rivermen selection comittee will narrow it down to three finalists. The three finalists will be voted on through the Rivermen Facebook Page to determine the ultimate winner.
The jerseys will be worn at a yet-to-be-determined game during the 2012-13 season and the jerseys will be auctioned off after the game with proceeds to benefit the Children's Hospital of Illinois.
Any questions can also be sent to email@example.com.
On a side note, I found that there are Rivermen Ice Girls.
Not any one of the dozen listed the Blues as their favorite team. Fail.
