Congratulations, Power of Life Scholarship Winners

Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center has awarded 20 scholarships worth $1,000 each to help area high school students pursue a college education.

The 2012 Power of Life Creative Scholarship asked students to use their imaginations to submit an original project that educates and inspires individuals to Commit for Life. Submissions ranged from recorded songs to websites to essays, and were judged on content, creativity, accuracy and persuasion.

The scholarship contest was open to any high school senior attending a school that participates in The Blood Center’s Power of Life program by hosting at least two blood drives during each school year. Each year, thousands of students give back to their community by donating blood and recruiting blood donors. In fact, high school blood drives account for 20 percent of Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center’s total mobile blood drive collections.

Congratulatons to our 2012 winners. For the names that include links, click to view the student's winning submission!
