2020 Colors Day Shirt

Pea Ridge DECA/Small Business students were tasked with creating the 2020 Colors Day shirt. After a unanimous vote, the students have decided to use Ayden Cotton’s design with an added touch from our vendor.

These shirts will be printed on a red Comfort Colors shirt. They will be $20 with part of the proceeds going to the Cotton family to aid in whatever they need. Youth sizes Small-XL are available and Adult sizes S-4X are available.

Please fill out this form for every shirt you would like to purchase. All orders and payments are due to Mrs. Young or The NEST by Thursday, January 30.
