What is the Student High School Rival (SHSR) Design Challenge?

The SHSR design challenge is a competition to design T-shirt artwork and cool graphics to celebrate LifeCenter’s Donate Life Month in April.

What Are the Benefits of Participating?

Be the change, make a difference. Save, change and improve people’s lives in our communities by joining the movement and showing your support for organ, eye and tissue donation. Be creative and have fun.

You’ll have an opportunity to demonstrate your creativity and design to help promote our mission, which is: By registering to become an organ eye and tissue donor you will save, change and improve lives.

Make an Impact and Join The Movement!

Your creative design and participation may be used in media, on T-shirts, and on other promotional items to support all of our community outreach efforts for Donate Life month in April. This initiative could positively impact thousands of people within our communities.

Design Guidelines

The identity of LifeCenter Organ Donor Network is rooted in saving, changing, and enhancing people’s lives through organ, eye and tissue donation. 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.
