Art Competition for Children and Adults with LD

Art Competition for People with Learning Disabilities

The National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) is calling for paintings, drawings, poems, songs, animations, and more that portray the strengths of children, teens, and adults with LD. Ask yourself: If you were a superhero, what special abilities would you have? If superheroes aren’t your thing, think about your talents (traditional or non-traditional) — what makes you unique? Or, what superpowers do you wish you had? This can be depicted visually, through the written word, song, or any other medium that best suits you.

Six prizes will be awarded. One participant from each age category will be awarded $400, and the first runner-up from each category will be awarded $100 each. Prizes will be awarded for outstanding works in each of the following categories:

Children: 4–12 years old
Teens: 13–17 years old
Adults: 18 and older

To enter, please send NCLD the artwork(s), a photo of the artist, a short paragraph (three to five sentences) written by the artist that explains how the submitted work relates to the “LD Superheroes and Superpowers” theme, and a completed submission and release form. See below for more details on submission requirements and process.

Entries must be received no later than Tuesday, May 28, 2013.

    Art competition. Now there’s a contradiction in terms.

    By the way, do you know you have an ad for dyslexia lenses under this comment form?

  2. Sanford says:

    Nope. Ugh. Where do you see it?

  3. Richard says:

    Well, now it’s an electronic viewfinder… Absence changes each time.

  4. Richard says:

    Now it’s in the right column.

  5. Sanford says:

    Hmm. Not when I look. If I do, it’ll be gone. No lens for me!

    Sandy: Adsense rotates ads… keep refreshing or coming back to the page, you might see it at some point.

    I have adblock on on my computer so see nothing but on my iPad I see the add in a red box and a UConn ad in the right column.

    You see ads, right? Just not the same ones.

  7. Sanford says:

    Yup I know about the variations. I hope to see it because I have the ability to block that if I do.

    BTW, I agree with the notion that art and competitions are sort of an anathema (I think that’s the correct usage of that word). I’m glad at least that art expression gets some showcasing here. More’s needed, LD or otherwise.
