Essay Contest

Everyone Belongs: Celebrating Differences

The Autism Society Affiliates in Wisconsin are proud to jointly host this Annual Statewide Autism Essay Contest. The Annual Autism Essay Contest is a great way to facilitate a meaningful dialogue about how schools, teachers, and students can support those with autism in the classroom. The contest is designed to assist students in gaining a deeper understanding of autism and how their peers with autism experience the world.
