The Organ/Tissue Donor Program is currently accepting entries for the 2022 Statewide Organ/Tissue Donor Student Poster Contest. A letter was mailed out to all K-12 public and private schools in September 2021. Winners will be selected from each category (K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12) and there will be an overall grand prize winner. The winners will be invited to Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White’s office at the Capitol Building in Springfield for a ceremony unveiling the new poster in the spring.
Winners will receive award certificates that will be presented to them at the Poster Contest Ceremony from the Secretary White. In addition to the awards, the winners will be presented with gift cards to Barnes and Noble Bookstore. The overall winner will receive a $100 gift card and the other winners will receive a $50 gift card, compliments of Donate Life Illinois.
