The Undergraduate Council is helping Harvard celebrate its birthday in style. This year the UC held a contest for the shirt design that would best represent Harvard's 375th birthday.1,032 ballots were cast, according to the UC Election Commission Chair Nikko S.S. Tomata '13.

The winning shirt was designed by Bonnie O. Wong '13. According to UC President Senan Ebrahim '12, her design won in a landslide.

"Out of the ten designs it got 25-30% of the votes," Ebrahim said, "which is huge for 10 designs."

Wong's winning design features Lowell Bell-Tower and Widner Library, both iconic Harvard buildings.

"I was sitting in the sixth floor of Quincy when I was designing and turned to look out the windowthe sun was setting on the silhouette of Lowell Bell-Tower," Wong said.

Shirts will be distributed October 13 in Annenberg and the upperclassmen dining halls.
