My Great Story: 3/21 Section

Do you know someone who has Down syndrome and makes you smile? How are you celebrating that person on World Down Syndrome Day? We want to hear all about it! Share your story in the 3/21: World Down Syndrome Day section of the My Great Story campaign!

My Great Story is the largest NDSS public awareness initiative. The goal of the campaign is to ignite a new way of thinking about people with Down syndorme by sharing stories written by and about them. Self-advocates and their family members, friends, coworkers, teachers, coaches, therapists and everyone with a connection to someone with Down syndrome are encouraged to share their stories! 

Those who don't feel they have a story to share are welcome to participate by voting and commenting on the stories already in the collection. Each month, the My Great Story of the Month Contest awards a prize to the author of the story with the most votes. The Contest sponsor this year is Rhyme & Reason, the clothing company that makes the signature NDSS 3:21 line. The winner each month throughout 2013 will win a $75 Rhyme & Reason gift certificate.

Check out the My Great Story World Down Syndrome Day collection and share your story!
