2012 Donate Life Poster and Essay contests are under way!

The Living Legacy Foundation has one objective when it comes to our outreach: to increase knowledge and awareness about organ and tissue donation to increase donor designation. The need for designated donors is great, as there are currently more than 112,000 men, women and children on the national list of people waiting for life-saving transplants, and The LLF believes education is the key to increasing donor designation and ultimately getting those people the transplants they so desperately need.

As an added incentive for high school students to learn more about donation and get involved with our cause, The LLF offers annual contests for high school students in which they have the opportunity to win a $500 savings bond.

This year, The LLF is offering a poster contest and an essay contest for high school students. Click the links below to view the official rules and guidelines for both contests, or e-mail Lauren Muskauski, lmuskauski@thellf.org for more information.
