All Saints STEAM Academy Wearing Their RIBC Design for Life T-shirts

Each year, the Rhode Island Blood Center holds a high school T-shirt design contest and rewards program to acknowledge one gifted student artist and the hundreds of students that donate three or more times a year.

Student artists age 19 and under can submit T-shirt designs by mail or on-line between October 1, 2016 and May 12, 2017. RIBC will then narrow the entries to a group of three finalists. The winner will be chosen by secret online ballot! The winning design will be printed on T-shirts and distributed to individuals 19 and under who present to donate three times between July 11, 2016 and July 9, 2017, with one donation attempt at a high school blood drive.

The winning artist will receive recognition on RIBC's social media pages and a $100 Amazon gift card.

If you have further questions or want to help promote the contest or blood donation in our community, use the online design tools or email

Designers Interested in Entering Contest


Qualifying to receive a T-shirt is simple. You must:

  • Be 19 and under by July 9, 2017.
  • Present to donate three times between July 11, 2016 and July 9, 2017 and make one of these attempts at a high school blood drive.
