The Reading Fightin Phils have announced an Energy Conservation theme jersey design competition for secondary students presented by Reading Area Community College during the Energy Conservation Go Green Night sponsored by Fromm Electric Supply.
The game is scheduled for Wednesday, June 21 at 7:05 p.m. when the Fightin Phils host the Akron RubberDucks.
The Fightin Phils are accepting jersey design concepts from local students with an Energy Conservation theme tied into the jersey. Students may draw their design or use computer software programs to design the jerseys. Designs may be submitted via mail or email in the following format: .jpg, .pdg, .eps, or .ai.
The jersey will be printed in full sublimation. Artwork of the jersey requires one of the Fightin Phils logos on the left chest or center chest. Students will receive a sample template that they may use to design the jersey.
Entries may be submitted to Todd Hunsicker, Director of Educational Programs, Music and Game Presentation. His email is [email protected]. Entries are due by Friday, March 24.
Each student that submits an entry will receive two free tickets to the game on Wednesday, June 21 at 7:05 p.m. The student with the winning submission will receive a Go Green Jersey, eight reserved yellow box seats with all you can eat buffet, a $50 gift card to the Fightin Phils Merchandise Store and a ceremonial first pitch prior to the game on June 21.
The specialty themed jerseys worn by the Fightin Phils will be auctioned during the game and proceeds will go to the Berks Conservancy. The game on June 21st will conclude with a post-game fireworks show thanks to Fromm Electric Supply. Tickets are available for purchase online at fightins.com or can be purchased in person at the Fightin Phils Box Office at FirstEnergy Stadium.
