Every year, the Public Relations Students Society of America (PRSSA) participates in the National Organ Donor Day Awareness Competition (NODAC). Thousands of Americans wait on the organ donation list, hundreds more recipients in need than willing donors. The PRSSA members work hard to bring this awareness to campus by planning an on-campus activity, providing information on the importance of organ donation.
Neal Corby, vice president of PRSSA, said the Oshkosh Chapter started planning and marketing for the event early last semester, hoping to bring more awareness and a large crowd. This year’s theme is Dribble, Dunk, Donate. The activity is geared around a three-on-three basketball tournament. There can be three to six people on a team, they can be mixed (both men and women), and is open to everyone, not just UWO students and staff. First-place winner will receive a $300 cash prize!
