2018 T-Shirt Contest Winner

Every year, in cooperation with Topsail High School, we host a t-shirt design contest for the Dolphin Dip. The students put a lot of creativity and effort into the designs and it seems to be getting harder and harder to choose the winner each year. But after much thought and deliberation, 2018’s t-shirt design winner is…Medea Zingerle!

Don’t forget to stop by the t-shirt booth BEFORE the dip. The t-shirts don’t last long and will not be available once the dip is over. Congratulations, Medea!
