“We have created the t-shirt design contest for the 2010 event as a way to allow artists and those who love the Birkie a creative way to participate in the event,” said Ned Zuelsdorff, executive director of the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation. “Proceeds from the sales of the 2010 featured t-shirt will benefit young skier programs. We hope that people will consider supporting the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation and our effort to foster youth skiing by entering the contest.”
He said the goal is inspire people to live active and healthy lives through participation in Birkebeiner events and programs.
“More simply put, we hope that people choose to ‘Live the Birkie.’” said Zuelsdorff. “We’re looking for a design that reflects the ‘Live the Birkie’ lifestyle.”
