A poster contest aimed at increasing young people's awareness of organ and tissue donation will be sponsored by Upstate New York Transplant Services.
The contest is open to all students in grades six to 12 in Western New York, with winners to be announced during an awards ceremony in April, National Donate Life Month.
Grand prize for the contest, which will be judged by a panel of local celebrities, will be a portable DVD player. In addition, the winning entry will be printed on T-shirts used in education campaigns to promote donor awareness.
Entry deadline is Feb. 11. For further information and entry forms, call the agency at 853-6667 or visit its Web site at unyts.org.
