NDSS and the National Buddy Walk® Committee are proud to announce a contest for a new t-shirt design for the 2013 Buddy Walk® season. The selected design will be featured on the t-shirt at the Flagship Buddy Walk® in New York City and will be available to all other Buddy Walks® in 2013 and beyond.  

Designers submitting their artwork can be individuals with Down syndrome, parents, siblings or friends.  This artist will receive recognition on the Buddy Walk website for the entire year!   

Artwork will be accepted until January 18, 2013 and should be emailed to [email protected] (subject line should read BUDDY WALK DESIGN CONTEST)

An entry form must be included with each submission. The winner will be announced in February 2013. 

Buddy Walk® T-Shirt Design Contest Submission Guidelines

While the standard Buddy Walk® logo may still be used for t-shirts and other promotional materials, we encourage groups to utilize the contest winner's design. As a reminder, the Buddy Walk® logo must always be featured prominently on the front of the t-shirts.  It is important that this logo is a nationally recognized symbol of our unity.
