We’d like to take this time to tell all readers about a contest we are having now until November 30, 2010!
Donate Life Maryland, in partnership with the Maryland Motor Vehicles Administration, is currently hosting a poster and essay contest to help raise awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation throughout the state of Maryland.
The Donate Life Maryland Poster Contest encourages middle school students (grades 6-8) in Maryland to create posters expressing the importance of becoming an organ, eye and tissue donor. Any middle school student wishing to participate in this fun contest should create an original poster with this years’ theme, “Knocking Out the Myths”. The grand prize winner will be selected to have his or her poster displayed in Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration branches across the state, will be featured in The Living Legacy Foundation’s quarterly newsletter and will win a $500 savings bond!
The Donate Life Maryland Essay Contest encourages high school students (grades 9-12) across the state of Maryland to write an essay expressing the importance of becoming an organ, eye and tissue donor. Student essays should be original and answer the important question, “Why did you decide to designate yourself as an organ, eye, and tissue donor?” Essays should also include any details leading to the decision to become a donor and why it is important. Winners of the essay contest will be featured in The Living Legacy Foundation’s quarterly newsletter and will win a $500 savings bond!
Entries for both contests can be submitted to The Living Legacy Foundation, Attn: Lauren Muskauski, 1730 Twin Springs Road, Suite 200, Baltimore, MD, 21227. All posters and essays must include the student’s full name, school, teacher, phone number and mailing address.
If you or someone you know is eligible for either of these contests and would like to enter, please contact Lauren Muskauski at 443-833-1015 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
