GFQ Team Banner Contest
Show us your best art as you represent your team in this GFQ challenge! Winners will be announced at Saturday's Good Morning GFM and receive bonus GFQ points along with the pride of having their banner displayed.

Rules:  Banners should be 18" wide x 36" tall and represent your team (Red or Blue). Please use the Butcher paper available at Con-Ops (while supplies last). We recommend planning ahead to bring your own markers. Your banner should be bold enough to stand out at a distance. You are welcome to use your own markers, etc or share from those available. Please be careful to not mark up the hotel, tables, or other surfaces. Work as a team or on your own. Put your name(s) and badge number(s) on the center of the back (not the corners due to hanging reasons). Team points will be split between participants. Only one entry per contestant. Feel free to find some casual space in the gaming room or elsewhere to work on this, but entries must be turned into Con Ops by 8PM on Friday for judging.
