It goes without saying that youth play a big role in the American Red Cross, as the foundation for future lifesaving efforts. From joining local Red Cross clubs aimed at service, becoming a registered volunteer with Chapter or Blood Services, to providing 20% of our regional blood supply, youth involved with the Red Cross help define where the organization is going next.
In celebration of Red Cross Month, Youth Services is holding a contest that allows youth to provide a visible representation of that spirit. The “Join the Red Cross” design contest asks youth from four age groups (Elementary/Middle School, High School, College, and Young Professionals) to provide visual designs aimed at inspiring their classmates and colleagues. It can be for either print (posters) or digital (web) purposes, and there is no limit to how many submissions can be made. Entries may be used in a future marketing campaign.
Elementary, Middle, and High School students have a chance at winning autographed t-shirts (from Disney Channel stars/singers, and American Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet members, Miley Cyrus and Raven-Symoné!). College students and Young Professionals have a chance at a $500 Visa Gift Card.
If you are interested, visit the contest website and make sure to review the full criteria, rules, and logo guidelines (there are great design tips too!). The contest is open now to April 30th, and entries can be submitted as either an individual or a team.
Are you in Grades 1 to 6? You can also enter the Draw & Prepare poster contest to spread the word about earthquakes and for a chance at a $50 gift certificate!
