Carlyn Henson is the winner of the 2021 Be a Bear T-shirt contest.

Supporting students

As a tribute to Missouri State's commitment to public affairs, approximately half of the proceeds from the Be a Bear T-shirt are donated to the SAA Degree Completion Scholarship.

Promoting spirit

The design of the Be a Bear T-shirt represents Missouri State University through-and-through. A new design for the shirt is debuted each March to coincide with the anniversary of the university's founding and is sold through Homecoming weekend in October.

T-shirts are only available for purchase within the calendar year they are released. Bears near and far can purchase the annual shirt and continue to collect them for years to come showing how Missouri State and its alumni embody the public affairs mission.

The design of each Be a Bear T-shirt is unique. The shirt design is selected from ones submitted by current students during the design contest which begins after homecoming and closes by mid-December. The designer of the 2018 T-shirt was Alexis Stegner.
