Your Artistic Talents Can Save and Heal Lives!

For nearly a decade, high school student artists have used their creative gifts for good in support of Donor Network West’s annual holiday card art contest. Held annually in the fall, this youth initiative provides mission-minded students with a platform to use their artwork to promote health, healing, and advocacy. We are so excited to invite high school students throughout our service area of Northern/Central California and Nevada to submit artwork that embodies the life-saving gift of organ and tissue donation. Our contest features several artistic mediums, and students can win significant cash prizes. Most notably, the first-place winner will enjoy the honor of seeing their design as Donor Network West’s 2020 holiday card.

2020 Art Contest Theme

“Peace, Hope & Healing: Celebrating Organ and Tissue Donation as a Gift for All Seasons”

2020 has amplified how precious the gift of health is, as well as the enduring goodwill of everyday people who instinctively step up to help others. Each and every one of us has the opportunity to affirm our intention as healthcare heroes when we register as organ and tissue donors. We welcome your creative submissions on the many gifts that are made possible through the gift of organ and tissue donation.
