Biology T-Shirt Design Winners!

Thank you to everyone who voted in our Biology T-Shirt Design competition, and especially to those who submitted a design!

It sure was hard to pick the best design, but the results are in!

Congratulations to our first prize winner Simon Valdez, who not only wowed us with diversity of life, but also nicely highlighted how statistical tools are a big part of biological research.

Congratulations are also in order for our second prize winner Laura Ulrich, who cleverly sneaked in a famous someone into her design!

Both will be receiving a $50 MEC gift card, courtesy of the Biology Grad Caucus as well as the Biology department.

Details on how to purchase our lovely t-shirts will follow soon!
