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 kicked 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, chosen by third-party volunteers, 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.
Submissions for the 2014 Times Square Video Photo Contest will begin on May 1, 2014.
The 2013 Times Square Video is now available to view on the NDSS YouTube Channel and to purchase for your own collection.
