AUBURN – Auburn University students, alumni and fans will have the opportunity to vote for the 2010-11 All Auburn All Orange T-shirt design from April 5-9. All Auburn All Orange was created by the Student Government Association and the Athletics Department as a way to promote the unity and spirit of Auburn. It is a celebration of the “Auburn Family,” and the shirt designs will reflect this.
Three potential designs will be featured on the All Auburn All Orange Web site. Fans can vote once per day until 4:45 p.m. on April 9. The winning design will be announced at the A-Day game on April 17.
Shirts will then be available for purchase at numerous retailers throughout Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.
A portion of the proceeds from the All Auburn All Orange shirt support Auburn’s student scholarship programs and help fund the Student Government Association’s Big Event program. The Big Event is a way for Auburn students to give back to the Auburn community through service projects on one specific day.
The All Auburn All Orange program is in its seventh year. Since inception, the program has generated nearly $51,000 for Auburn student scholarships and the SGA’s Big Event.
After purchasing a T-shirt, fans are encouraged to wear their All Auburn All Orange shirt at designated events throughout the year including College Colors Day, a national movement in conjunction with the kick-off of the college football season on Sept. 3. College Colors Day promotes higher education and celebrates the achievements, spirit and traditions of colleges and universities. The Auburn Family is encouraged to wear their orange and blue on College Colors Day to show support for the Tigers.
“The Athletics Department is excited to once again support the All Auburn All Orange initiative,” Director of Athletics Jay Jacobs said. “This program is more than just a student shirt promotion. The designs reflect the spirit and pride of the Auburn Family. We would like to see all fans participate by voting for their favorite shirt design. Fans can also support the program by wearing this shirt to all designated events starting with the Arkansas State game on Sept. 4.”
