Today, March 25, is the federally recognized Cerebral Palsy (CP) Awareness Day! We are excited to announce the winners for our inaugural CP Awareness Month photo contest. In February, we began accepting submissions in three categories that we thought were important to represent our community: kids, teen & young adults, and adults over 25. Each of the following submissions were selected by being the top three photos in these categories in votes out of 13,383 counted:
First Prize Winners ($100 each) [Adults | Kids | Teens and Young Adults]
Second Prize Winners ($50 each) [Adults | Kids | Teens and Young Adults]
Third Prize Winners ($25 each) [Adults | Kids | Teens and Young Adults]
Congratulations to each of these photographers and subjects for their selection and their prizes of $100 for 1st place, $50 for 2nd place and $25 for 3rd place.
In addition to these winners, the staff and volunteers of the CP Research Network voted for best overall photograph in terms of what represented the CP Research Network’s values. The winner is:
Congratulations to Karyn for the photo in her graduation cap and gown and for the $500 prize!
Thank you to EVERYONE that participated – submissions, shares and votes. We hope the sharing of pictures and our awareness banners helped you all create awareness for CP and celebrate our vibrant community! Wear your green proudly today!
