Everyone Belongs: Celebrating Differences
In collaboration with schools across Wisconsin, the Autism Society Affiliates in Wisconsin are hosting the 12th Annual Autism Essay Contest, a program designed to assist all students in gaining a deeper understanding of autism and how their peers with autism experience the world.
This essay contest is a wonderful opportunity to create an open dialogue about autism, how it affects students in your school and why celebrating differences is important. We hope that you will welcome this opportunity to promote understanding and acceptance of differences in your school.
Please encourage participation in this project by sharing this information with classroom teachers or students who may be interested in participating.
Division 1: K-2nd grade
1st Place Winners in each division will receive a $100 Amazon gift card
