Currently underway is the 2018 Organ/Tissue Donor Student Poster Contest. Submissions must be postmarked by January 31, 2018. A letter from the Secretary and entry form for the contest have been mailed out to all K-12 public and non-public schools statewide. Entries are divided into four categories: K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. The winners will be invited to Secretary White's office at the Capitol Building in Springfield in March or April.
Winners will receive awards presented to them at the Poster Contest Ceremony from the Secretary. In addition to the awards, the winners will also receive gift cards to Barnes and Noble Bookstore. The overall winner will receive a $100 gift card, while the other winners will each receive a $50 gift card, compliments of Donate Life Illinois.
