What's your story?
Calling all Vermont writers, singers, comedians, and poets who live in our disability community…
The Vermont Developmental Disabilities Council wants your stories!
VTDDC is hosting a story-telling contest to celebrate voices from the disability. The theme is “Be the Change.”
Contest winners will be invited to perform at the much-anticipated “From Our House To Yours, an evening of story-telling” at the Vermont State House, February 20th.
You do not need to know how to read or write to participate.
- Stories must stay within 3 to 5 minutes.
- Stories must describe a way in which disability has impacted you, your family, and/or the community, and be based on true events.
- Submit your story in any one of the following formats: (1) a written script; (2) a video; or (3) an audio recording.
Our Review Team may consider other types of media.
- Send your stories to: firstname.lastname@example.org
