Contests and Awards
The AATB is currently accepting submissions and nominations for several opportunities. You can read a brief description of each opportunity below, and access more information and the online submission sites using the included links.
Rose Parade Sponsorship Nominations
Nominations are now being accepted for AATB's Rose Parade sponsorship contest. Each year, AATB sponsors one tissue recipient from an accredited institution to have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ride on the Donate Life Float in the Rose Parade.
The Rose Parade provides the sponsored rider and their nominating organization with an incredible opportunity to promote the life-saving and life-enhancing power of tissue donation to a national audience.
You can nominate a tissue recipient here.
