Get creative: Submit a Fiesta medal design for UT Health San Antonio

Here are the four previous UT Health San Antonio Fiesta medals.

UT Health San Antonio is sponsoring a 2019 Fiesta medal contest and you’re invited to submit a design. The medal should promote the full range and missions of our institution in the community.

To date, we have produced four medals. For the 2018 Fiesta, our medal won 3rd place in the medical division of the San Antonio Express-News’ competition.

For our 2019 Fiesta medal, we are seeking a design that is both celebratory and fully representative of UT Health San Antonio. The design may include symbols representing our four missions – academics, research, patient care and community service — and/or our five schools – medicine, nursing, dentistry, health professions and graduate biomedical sciences.

The winner will be invited to ride on the UT Health San Antonio barge during the 2019 Texas Cavaliers River Parade.
