Annual Disability Awareness Poster Contest


Dover, Delaware – October is disability history and awareness month in Delaware. The Governor’s Advisory Council for Exceptional Citizens (GACEC) will once again host a Disability History poster contest. The annual Disability History poster contest provides kindergarten through 12th grade students an opportunity to convey their thoughts about disability awareness issues through art.

Posters will be judged by division’s elementary, middle, high school, computer-generated art (available to grades 9-12 only) and adapted art. Adapted art includes artwork done by students who may need to use adaptive equipment and require assistance to complete their project.

First, second and third place winners are chosen in each division, and winners and their families will be invited to an awards banquet hosted by GACEC. The deadline for poster entries is Friday, November 1, 2019. This year’s theme is “Inclusion is within everyone’s ability, WE ARE ALL ABLE.
