Headsweats, the leader in performance headwear, is inviting the public to join them in celebrating a major milestone by entering original artwork for the chance to be featured on a limited-edition 20th anniversary performance trucker hat. Artists and fans are asked to submit designs that honor the Headsweats brand and their customers’ active outdoor lifestyle.

20th Anniversary Design Contest submissions will be accepted now through April 8. The top 3 designs will be shared for a public vote and the winner will be announced May 1. The final product will debut at Outdoor Retailer this summer and be sold exclusively on the Headsweats website. The winning artist will receive a $100 Headsweats Gift Certificate and his/her choice of a nonprofit partner to benefit from a portion of the proceeds.

“We wanted to celebrate our 20th anniversary in a way that would encourage participation from the very community that has made it possible for us to be here today,” says Headsweats President Mike McQueeney. “We are so excited to see what folks produce.”

Headsweats was founded in the winter of 1998 by shoe industry veteran and avid cyclist, Alan Romick. Frustrated by the perils of forehead sweat dripping down from his helmet, he set out to develop performance headwear that would wick moisture and dry quickly. Starting with a single product available in just four colors, the “Cotton Classic” quietly became the elite athlete’s secret weapon, expanding to over 17 different products available in over 140 different colors and styles.

Today the Headsweats product line includes washable, lightweight, supremely wicking hats that dominate the endurance running, cycling, triathlon, rowing, and adventure racing markets. The company’s unconditional product warranty and unsurpassed customer service combined with their spirit of innovation has led them to be the world leader in performance headwear.
