Children's School Families:
We wanted to share this opportunity for students to submit artwork to the Disability Pride Visual Arts Contest. The contest celebrates the history of the Disability Rights Movement and the ongoing fight for inclusion.  Last year we had a finalist from The Children's School! If you are interested in learning more about the Disability Rights Movement, below is some information. 
Disability Pride Visual Arts Contest

Theme: Nothing About Us Without Us

Deadline: March 26, 2021


The NYC Department of Education (DOE) Disability Pride Visual Arts Contest celebrates the challenges and achievements of people with disabilities in their struggle for equity and equal access, opportunity, and inclusion. 


As we have in the past few years, the New York City Department of Education (DOE) is inviting students to participate in the Disability Pride Visual Art Contest. The 10 Finalists and 1 Grand Finalist will have their artwork showcased by the DOE and be invited to a virtual event in Spring 2021. Recognizing that art is an invaluable means of expression and communication, the DOE is encouraging teachers and families to engage their students in developing visual representations of what the phrase, “Nothing About Us Without Us,” means to them. Teachers and families are encouraged to build the contest into their curriculum and/ or have meaningful conversations around disability. The deadline for submission is Friday, March 26, 2021.
