Allen Ward first Place

After reviewing more than 400 submissions and gathering 5,400 votes, UCard is excited to announce the winner of its card design contest—University of Utah alumnus and super fan, Allen Ward.

For his design bearing the University of Utah seal, Ward is credited with changing the face of UCard and was also awarded an iPad, along with the satisfaction that his design will soon be in wallets all across the Wasatch Front.

Coming in at second and third place were Justin Dahl and Jaden Hollady, respectively, who were awarded gift cards to the Campus Store.


UCards bearing the old design will remain valid for as long as the cardholder wishes to retain the card. Those wanting a new UCard may purchase one for $10 at the UCard office, beginning June 6. Newly designed UCards will be issued to incoming students this fall.

In concert with adopting its new look, UCard has also moved to a new location in Room 158 of the Union Building.
