DBIDA Annual Art Contest: Designing the Future
The Dallas Branch of the International Dyslexia Association is calling for paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculpture from children, teens, and adults with dyslexia that portray your expression of how dyslexia can help "design your future" through the strengths and the challenges that exist. The contest is to raise awareness of dyslexia and its strength-related and challenge-related impacts, in coordination with Dyslexia Awareness Month, October.
The first place winner in each category will receive a $50 gift card, and one winner's artwork will be selected as the logo for the February DBIDA conference in Richardson, Texas. In addition, several other entrants will have their artwork displayed on DBIDA's website and at educational group meetings via a power point slideshow. The DBIDA Board of Directors will recognize the winners at the October Dyslexia Awareness Event, and the grand prize winner and parents will be invited to join us at our conference in Richardson on February 6, 2015.
