To celebrate Montana State University’s 125th anniversary in February 2018, the university is announcing a poster design contest. MSU is asking for poster design submissions from across Montana and beyond. The contest will award prizes in four categories: MSU students, MSU alumni, Montana community members, and Montana high school students. Three top designs will be selected from each category. From those categories, one winning selection will be chosen as the grand prize winner to promote the yearlong celebration of MSU’s 125th anniversary. MSU will print and distribute the grand prize winning poster beginning in June 2017.
