RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) --  Students from nine Richmond middle schools are competing in a new, online campaign to raise money and show a little school pride.

T-shirts designed by student teams are being sold online here.

The sold shirts also go towards the student teams who are competing to earn prizes for their MSR programs.

"Team A" represents Thompson, Franklin and Elkhardt Middle Schools.
