Senior Raises Awareness with Her Art

Donate Life Poster Contest

A senior from CREC’s Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts won honorable mention for a poster design that helps give a second chance at life. Visual artist Emma Halloran submitted her artwork to a poster design contest run by Donate Life, CT.

Donate Life is  an organization in the state with the intended purpose of raising awareness and increasing the number of organ donors in the state. According to the organization’s
 website, there are approximately 1,275 people in Connecticut alone waiting for a donation. One of the many ways Donate Life raises awareness is through a visual arts contest for high school students. Since many students receive their driver’s license around this age, the contest is one of many ways to get potential donors signed up when they go for their driver’s exam.

Emma Halloran will take part in a ceremony at the State Capitol where her work and others’ will be honored.
