For nearly three decades, the City Park Jazz series has been filling the Mile High City with colorful sounds and vibrations. Packing a picnic and spreading out a blanket in front of the pavilion has become a veritable rite of summer. Organizers are once again giving the area's most talented designers a chance to have their design immortalized on a commemorative T-shirt.

In addition to the exposure, a $500 prize is at stake. Starting on Saturday, February 15, any Colorado residents -- in the past the contest was limited to entries from students -- over the age of thirteen are eligible to submit designs via City Park Jazz's Facebook. Submissions will be accepted until March 15, and finalists will be picked the following weekend when voting begins.
