(Reading, PA) - The Reading Fightin Phils are excited to announce the final results of the "Go Green - Energy Conservation" jersey design contest! The contest was announced in February. The Fightin Phils decided instead of rewarding just one student artist, their graphics team decided to incorporate artwork and concepts from five talented students in the final jersey design. The jersey will be worn by the Fightin Phils on Wednesday, June 27th at 7:15 pm against the Erie SeaWolves.
Over 400 students submitted jersey designs and all designs will be on display at the Wednesday, June 27th game.
The five student winners are:
- Curtis Fry, 12th grade - Perkiomen Valley High School
- Responsible for the overall style of the final jersey design
- Allison Bracy, 8th grade - Hamburg Middle School
- Took the name "Fightins" and represented each letter using a different symbol of Energy Conservation
- Katarina Kincade, 12th grade - Pottstown High School

- Ellie Norton - Twin Valley High School
- Incorporated real grass into her jersey design.
- Sanjana Kilaru, 4th grade - East Ward Elementary
- Her entry included images of trees and Energy Conservation Slogans. Her use of the tree being held up by hand-like branches and the slogan "Go Green or Go Home" were incorporated as a Back Plate Patch and Left Sleeve Patch
