Enter the Parkinsonís Awareness Month T-Shirt Design Contest!

You Design It!

Each year, April is designated as Parkinson’s Awareness month.  How can you raise awareness?  How can you enlist others in the fight for a cure?

Help us prepare for April 2010. Enter YOUR design in the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation (PDF) Parkinson’s Awareness Month T-Shirt Contest! 

We invite you to submit a design, including PDF’s trademark tulip and yellow and green, that you think will help the Parkinson’s community to spread the word about our cause next April.  The winner’s design will be offered exclusively on PDF’s online store and distributed at PDF's booth at the Parkinson’s Unity Walk in New York City in April 2010. 

The winning design will be chosen by the public, who will vote online from a group of finalists in February 2010.  The winner will be announced on our website on Wednesday, March 10, 2010.
