Win Awareness Items to Celebrate World Down Syndrome Day!


By Jen Franklin Kearns, ds-connex team member

World Down Syndrome Day 2020 is quickly approaching, and we can’t wait to begin the celebration! In fact, we’re so excited that we don’t want just one day of recognition, so we’re extending the party to 21 days!!

This year, ds-connex wants to know how you recognize World Down Syndrome Day! Send us the details of your celebrations, along with a photo, so we can share your fabulous ideas. Your plans just might inspire another family to begin a new tradition in their school, workplace, or neighborhood – this is how we build and strengthen our community!

We will feature your ideas across our social media channels, beginning 3/1. On 3/20, all of the ideas will be compiled into an Instagram story (be sure to follow us – @dsconnex!), where they will live as a highlight on our Instagram. In addition to the social media features, you will also be eligible to win a prize package (containing items to share and spread awareness in your community) or a donation to your Down syndrome fundraising team. Prizes will be randomly drawn on March 4th, and winners will be notified by email and announced on our social media.

Don’t delay – send us your entries today, and let’s get this party started!

Contest Details:

Starting today, send your entries to contests@ds-connex.org. Entries must include a description of how your family observes World Down Syndrome Day, along with a photo. We must receive your entries by Friday, February 28 to be eligible for prizes. Three prizes will be awarded, and winners will be randomly selected on March 4th, 2020. Prize packs will include awareness items to share at school, church, or daycare; winners will have an opportunity to provide input on the items in the collection. If a team donation is selected, it will be in the amount of $100 and will be awarded when the team’s online fundraising site opens. By submitting content for the World Down Syndrome Day campaign, you are granting ds-connex permission to edit your submission for grammar and/or length, and use the submitted photo and story in ds-connex social media posts and website.
