Where can I find this story so I can see all the H.S. from Chicago that participated?
What a great idea. I love it. Let me know if you plan on expanding it to near Chicago suburbs for next year's challenge.

In my short career (two years in September) with Southwest Airlines, I have come to love the Culture and really enjoy the freedom we have to express ourselves as an individual. One of the freedoms we have is to wear non-uniform shirts to work on certain occasions. I started collecting shirts or hats from across the system so that I may wear them to work. My first shirt was a polo shirt from the New York LaGuardia Station opening, followed by the polo shirt from the Boston Logan Station opening. The Boston shirt is great because it's red, and I can wear it on red-shirt Fridays. One of my favorite shirts is the one I helped design! I organized a raffle to cover the cost of designing and making “Team Southwest” shirts for the Chicago “Shamrock Shuffle.” It was a great success, and the shirts are awesome! I don't have much of a collection, because I haven’t worked here that long, but I hope to add to it in the near future. People always ask me, “How did you get that shirt?” I simply tell them, “Sorry, I can't tell you.” But, now they'll all know that in order to get something…all you have to do is…ask. The Culture of Southwest is giving and Team-oriented, so I’m never surprised when “Warriors” go out of their way to help one another. On that note, if anyone reading this has old uniform Ground Operations shirts, ties, or other shirts and hats and they want to de-clutter, feel free to look me up.
