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 Buddy Walk® in New York City. NDSS receives over 2,000 photo submissions for the Times Square Video contest. And each year it keeps growing! 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.
Due to the influx of photos we receive each year, a $5 submission fee is required to submit your photo in order to help us continue to manage this opportunity.
