GrandPrizeWinnerCongratulations to Timmy Wiverstad, winner of the 2013 PrideFest Milwaukee T-Shirt Design Contest!

Timmy receives a prize package valued at over $500, including two VIP Weekend passes, a PrideFest swag bag, and three t-shirts of his design.

We thank all contestants for their passion, creative vision, and community pride.  This was a wonderful experience and we will definitely continue the tradition next year and beyond!
