Dribbling up designs: Local artists win Wisconsin Herd Art Contest, appearing on special jersey

Local News

(WFRV) – Local kids’ artwork will be appearing on Wisconsin Herd jerseys after parents submitted their child’s artwork to the basketball team in a recent contest.

According to Wisconsin Herd, nearly 2,300 artists from over 15 schools across the Fox Valley showed off their art skills for a chance to incorporate their design on a jersey during a select home game this upcoming season.

Sponsored by BMO Harris Bank, the art contest had local participating schools that included Fond du Lac, Green Bay, Neenah, Oshkosh, and Kimberly.

A panel of team members and BMO staff picked out five winning designs that will be combined and later appear as special jerseys during a game in the upcoming 2021-22 NBA G League season this fall. Organizers say all of the jerseys will then be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting a select non-profit.

Wisconsin Herd says the winning designs came from Lourdes Academy in Oshkosh, two from Oakwood Elementary in Oshkosh, Kimberly High School, and Clayton Elementary in Neenah.
