MADISON (NBC 26) — The votes are in, and the winning design for the 15th annual The Red Shirt competition features Bucky flashing the iconic "W" gesture.

Appropriately titled "W Bucky", the shirts will go on sale August 1. Shirts can be purchased online through the UW Alumni store or at any University of Wisconsin Madison Book Store location.

Every purchase of The Red Shirt will go to support students on campus by funding scholarships for need-based students.

The Red Shirt tradition started in 2008 as a spirited way to give back to students. Ever since the shirt was unveiled in 2008, a new collectible design has been introduced every year.

With each new edition of The Red Shirt, the previous one is retired, never to be sold again.

Each new edition of the shirt gives the chance for students, alumni and fans to unite over Badger pride.
