Call for artists: Organization seeks ‘Expressions of Dyslexia’

Published 8:34 pm Wednesday, October 8, 2014

The Alabama Branch of the International Dyslexia Association is calling for paintings, drawings, photographs, and sculpture that portray your expression of dyslexia and how it affects your life through the strengths and the challenges that exist from Alabama children, teens and adults. The contest is to raise awareness of dyslexia and its strength-related and challenge-related impacts, in coordination with Dyslexia Awareness Month, October. The winners’ artwork will be displayed on our website, at potential regional educational group meetings via a power point slideshow, and on notecards created by Little Birds Etc. that will be available on the ALIDA website. Entries must be received by 5 p.m. CST, Oct. 31, 2014.
