Rhode Island Blood Center Announces
Dates for Our
Design for Life Contest!

The Rhode Island Blood Center is currently running their Annual T-shirt design contest and recognition program to acknowledge one gifted artist and hundreds of students that donate three times a year.

Student artists age 19 and under will be able to submit T-shirt designs by mail or on-line between September 2, 2014 and Friday March 20, 2015. The Center will then narrow the entries to a group of three finalists. The winner will be chosen by a community wide on-line secret ballot that will run between March 31, 2015 at 9am and Friday April 4, 2015 at 4pm. The winning design will be printed on T-shirts and distributed to individuals 19 and under who present to donate three times between July 8, 2014 and July 7, 2015 and make one attempt at a high school blood drive.

The winning artist will receive considerable exposure in the Rhode Island Blood Centers newsletter, in media releases on the Blood Centers web-site, and social media pages. The winning designer will also receive an 16GB iPod Nano.

If you have further questions or want to get involved in helping to promote this contest or blood donation to youth in our community, you can use the tools provided on this site or contact us via EMail at designforlife@ribc.org.
