What is the student design challenge?

The Student Design Challenge is an opportunity for local students to create original artwork and cool graphics to celebrate Donate Life Month in April.

What Are the Benefits of Participating?

Make an Impact and help save lives!

Your creative design will be used in media and on promotional items to support all of our community outreach efforts during Donate Life Month in April. This initiative can positively impact thousands of people within our communities.

Design Guidelines

The mission of LifeCenter Organ Donor Network (LifeCenter)
is to save, heal, and change lives through organ, eye and tissue
donation, while honoring those who gave. Donate Life Month
in April helps raise awareness about donation, encouraging
Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors and to
honor those who have saved lives through the gift of donation.
