Help Your School Win the Northern California High School Blood Drive Challenge

Help your school win the Blood Drive High School Challenge trophy!

Help your school and your community by participating in the 2012-2013 High School Blood Drive Challenge. Between September 11 and June 8 participating schools that meet their unit goal and have the highest percentage of blood donation* within each participating school district will win the challenge.

Winning schools will host the traveling Blood Drive Challenge trophy for a year and be recognized on our website.

The Student's Guide to Blood Donation includes information for sixteen-year-old donors and required Red Cross parental consent forms. For more information about donating blood, tips on getting others involved, and advice on how to get ready for your blood donation, check out our student information section.

*If a school has two blood drives during the competition, the drive with the highest percentage of blood donations will be entered into the challenge. Trophy will remain at school until the 2013-2014 High School Challenge. At which point the trophy will then go to the 2014 winner.


High school students play a critical role in maintaining the local blood supply. Each year, nearly 7,000 pints of life-saving blood are collected at local high schools, helping save thousands of lives. High school donors are the future generation of blood donors.

For more information about the High School Challenge or how your school can participate, please contact your American Red Cross donor recruitment account manager or call 510-594-5212.
