Expanding Possibilities

Annual Art Contest

The Dallas IDA is calling for photographs and two–dimensional art entries from children, teens, and adults with dyslexia that portray how you have lived beyond the limits of dyslexia – “Expanding Possibilities”. The contest is to raise awareness of dyslexia and its strength-related and challenge-related impacts, in coordination with Dyslexia Awareness Month in October.

The first place winner in each category will receive a $50 gift card, and each winner’s artwork will be featured at the February Dallas IDA conference in Richardson, Texas. In addition, several other entrants will have their artwork displayed on Dallas IDA’s Website, social media, and at educational group meetings. The Dallas IDA Board of Directors will recognize the winners at the February regional conference and the grand prize winner and parents will be invited to join us at our conference in Richardson on February 10, 2017. Submissions should be in a digital format as well the written explanation.

Submissions must be created or taken by the artist.
