Do you like charity?  Can you design a graphic for a t-shirt?  If you answered, "yes" to both questions, then you might be interested in the Kid's Story t-shirt design competition.  This benefits 826 National, a nonprofit organization promoting kids and their creative writing.  According to an article at Flavor Wire, one of the judges happens to be a huge fan of The Big Lebowski.  I don't know how you'd incorporate that into your design, but it's worth a try.  Winning design gets $2000 and get to see their design put on a shirt.

We have a serious love for graphic t-shirts, so when Flavorpill NYC’s managing editor Leah Taylor was chosen to be the judge of Social Designer’s Kids Story t-shirt design competition (which benefits our friends at 826 National — a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting expository and creative writing for kids ages 6-18.) we were all over it. That, and we’re a big fan of both their owl mascot and unbelievably cool mission: “to spark new thinking about the issues that matter most by encouraging the design community to create fun, socially-relevant graphics for tees, totes and other goods.”

You can get involved too, by submitting a kid-story inspired design. Illustrate a single scene or line from the story, or just the overall gist; be warned that Leah is partial to any story involving peanut butter and The Big Lebowski (we’re not sure where you’re going to find a child who can spin that kind of yarn, but you never know.)

The winner will get $2,000, and the thrill of seeing their design on a t-shirt.

Entry closes on Monday, August 3; you can find more contest details on Social Designer.
