YOUR DESIGN could be printed ON SOCKS for YCP students! Compete in the Annual Rock the Socks Design Competition and try to unseat the two year reigning champ, Madison Cook '24. Get creative, show your Spartan Spirit - and maybe even do a little campaigning to have your sock design voted the favorite by the student body!
