Transplant Awareness, a nonprofit organization that promotes organ and tissue donation in the United States, recently announced that it will hold its first ever slogan and logo design contest for a new set of promotional pins that will be added to the product catalog of Transplant Awareness.
The contest will have the theme “The Role of Organ Donors in Giving Hope and Saving Lives in America.” All entries are expected to reflect the essence of the theme set by Transplant Awareness.
The contest is open to all college students who have the artistic skills and creativity to translate Transplant Awareness’ advocacy into words and visual art.
Three winners will be given cash prizes and freebies. The third placer will receive $200, and the second placer will be given $300. The grand champion will take home $500. The top prize winner’s work will be featured in Transplant Awareness’ promotional pins.
Educating millennials about organ transplant and donation
“This slogan and logo design competition is part of Transplant Awareness’ campaign to raise awareness about organ and tissue donation not just through the output from this contest but also the participants. We want the young generation to be aware and involved in this very relevant advocacy in our society today. We want college students to have the right mindset when it comes to organ transplant and donation as early as now,” said Rodney Thacker, spokesperson of Transplant Awareness.
A screening committee composed of the leader-volunteers of Transplant Awareness will screen the contest entries for adherence to the theme and the organization’s advocacy before the art works go to the panel of judges.
