VISUAL ARTS CONTEST
2020 Contest Information
Submit a poster, photo or video entry by March 31, 2020.
Since 1990, tens of thousands of high school students have participated in Donate Life Connecticut’s Annual Visual Arts Contest, and we are inviting you to showcase the creativity and talent of your students by encouraging their participation in this year’s program, which we’ve expanded to include video submissions! There are a host of cool prizes for the winners:
1st Place: Chromebook
2nd Place: Alexa Echo
3rd Place: $100 Amazon.com Gift Card
Best Video: All new Amazon Fire HD
Tony Award: Cash Prize
$100 Visa gift card awarded to the teacher with the highest number of student submissions!
Why is it important to get this life-saving message to high school students?
The contest is intended to raise awareness about organ and tissue donation, and the importance of becoming a registered donor. Donation and transplantation can affect anyone. With most Connecticut students applying for their driver’s license or state ID at the age of 16, our goal—by encouraging students to create a poster, photography piece, or video message—is for students to be better informed about donation and the donor registry when asked if they want to be a registered organ and tissue donor at the DMV.
This year, awards will be presented for selected visual art winners on April 24, 2020, during a kickoff celebration of National Donate Life Month (April) at the Connecticut State Capitol. In addition to first, second, third place and video winners, a special Tony Award is also presented to one student in memory of a young man who passed away while waiting for a transplant.
Below, you’ll find information detailing the contest rules and requirements, examples of past winners, helpful hints for students and the application to be adhered to the back of each submission.
In collaboration with the Annual Visual Arts Contest, Donate Life Connecticut offers you the opportunity to invite organ and tissue transplantation professionals into the classroom for an in-house presentation designed for students, offering information on donation and the role that each individual can play in saving and improving the quality of life of others.
