What story does your portrait tell?

Forwarded from Leslie Leslie, MASSPAC 

Calling all creative people with learning disabilities! 

The National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) is looking for
self-portraits that capture what life is like for individuals with learning
disabilities (LD). What story does your portrait tell? Share with us
expressions of your hopes, dreams, struggles and successes. Show us what the
world is like through your eyes. Help us to celebrate the unique vision of
children and adults affected by LD! 

Selected submissions may be showcased on our website and on our Facebook
page. Three prizes will be awarded:

of $500 and two runners-up awards of $200 each. Prizes will be awarded for
outstanding works in each of the following categories: 

* Children: 4-12 years old
* Teens: 13-17 years old

To enter, please send NCLD the artwork(s), a photo of the artist, a short
paragraph (three to five sentences) written by the artist detailing his or
her experience with LD, and a completed submission and release form. Please
