You have the opportunity to create a piece of Wilson College of Textiles history. The design contest for the 2022 Wilson College bookmarks is now open! 

Since 1960, the college has given out woven bookmarks as a keepsake to alumni and friends of the college. 

All Wilson College faculty, staff, students and alumni are invited to submit a design around this year’s theme — sustainability. 

Sustainability is not only a priority, it’s also one of the core values that informs each of the college’s decisions. 

Entrants have a broad range of inspiration to work from. The United Nations defines sustainability through 17 goals, from quality education, to clean water, to responsible consumption and production.
