TRANSCAER Fundraiser - In Support of the Hazmat Team Response Fund

TRANSCAER T-Shirt Design Contest


The TRANSCAER Fundraiser is our latest initiative to support the Hazmat Team Response Fund, honor the incredible dedication of our first responders, and engage with the hazmat community.

T-Shirt Design Contest: 

Enter our design contest for a chance to see your creative masterpiece featured on the exclusive TRANSCAER® Hazmat Team Fund apparel. The winning design will be showcased in the TRANSCAER today magazine, quarterly newsletter publication, and across our social media platforms. The winner will also receive a FREE t-shirt with their unique design.

The winning design will be featured on the back of a t-shirt and/or sweatshirt, complemented by the distinguished TRANSCAER logo on the front. 

Scholarship Opportunity: 

As an extra perk, the winner of the t-shirt design contest will also be awarded a scholarship to attend a 2024 hazmat conference or hazmat training of their choice*.

*The training must be hosted by a TRANSCAER Sponsor or if attending a hazmat conference, a TRANSCAER Sponsor must be one of the presenters.

Support the Cause: 

Show your support and snag this exclusive apparel. The 2023-2024 TRANSCAER Hazmat Team Fund apparel will be available online for purchase after Monday, November 13, 2023. Each purchase will directly contribute to the Hazmat Team Response Fund, established to assist hazmat responders in acquiring hazmat response equipment and advanced training to protect themselves and their community when responding to hazardous materials transportation incidents.

The apparel will also be available for purchase at various events and hazmat conferences where TRANSCAER will participate, throughout 2024. 

100% of the proceeds earned from the t-shirt fundraiser will benefit the TRANSCAER Hazmat Team Response Fund to support hazmat teams across the United States.
