About the Times Square Video Presentation

Every year, NDSS reminds the world in a big way about the gifts that people with Down syndrome bring to their communities through a special video presentation on a jumbo screen in the heart of the Times Square.

The Times Square Video presentation kicks off Down Syndrome Awareness Month on the morning of the NDSS Flagship Buddy Walk® in New York City. NDSS receives over a thousand photo submissions for the Times Square Video contest. The featured photographs highlight children, teens and adults with Down syndrome working, playing and learning alongside friends and family. These collective images promote acceptance and inclusion, which is the foundation of NDSS and the National Buddy Walk® Program.

The 2015 Times Square Video Contest will open May 4, 2015 and will run to July 22, 2015.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the 2014 Times Square Video Contest! This year we received an unprecedented number of photos,  over 2,000,  that as usual were outstanding and diverse. 

If your photo was not chosen for the 2014 video, we'd still love for it to be featured on our website through the My Great Story public awareness campaign! 

The 2014 Times Square Video is now available to view on the NDSS YouTube Channel and to purchase for your own collection.
