In fall 2015, The Johns Hopkins University Chapter of Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE), an international honor society dedicated to the discipline of computer information systems and computer science, partnered with The Johns Hopkins Association for Computing Machinery to organize a t-shirt design competition and fundraiser. The goal of the competition was to raise UPE’s visibility and to recruit prospective members. “UPE provides opportunities to interact with professors, alumni in the industry, and students from around the country. It is also a great avenue to seek scholarships at the undergraduate and graduate level,” said UPE President Disa Mhembere.

Several designs from undergraduates, graduates and Computer Science (CS) Department staff were submitted. Over 100 t-shirts were sold; all proceeds from the competition will go towards purchasing chapter supplies and future outreach initiatives. Michael Miller, a senior, won the design competition by a popular vote. His multiple design submissions had nearly the same number of votes and were selected as co-winners. Michael also received a $50 gift card.

The designs are displayed in the photograph; one is the “git” design and the other is the “evolution” design.
