"What can YOU do?" Video Contest

The Campaign for Disabilities Employment is launching the "What Can YOU do?"video contest. They are looking for "60 second videos that will change attitudes about disabilities and employment. The videos can be serious, surprising, funny, whatever! THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO BE CREATIVE AND MAKE PEOPLE THINK." Top videos will be featured on the Campaign for Disabilities website. The overall contest winner will receive a prize worth $1,500 and will have the opportunity to participate in a Washington event and meet with disability, business or government leaders and be honored.

One of my FAVORITE sayings is "Everyone is good at SOMETHING." I love pointing out to my kids what they CAN do when they are disappointed in other areas. When my daughter grumbles about not being a great runner, I might say: "Running is not your thing, but you are an amazing reader and you have an incredible memory. Everyone is good at SOMETHING." Then I turn the conversation toward everyone's unique talents, noting little and big gifts of people she knows. I often include what I am bad and good at, saying "I can't remember anything...but I am a great cook." I was happy to read about this new contest to bring awareness to what people with disabilities CAN do...I would love some of the creative parents I know to participate in this video. If you don't win the actual contest you can post your video on YouTube and send me the link and What To Feed Your Kids will award a top video and post the top videos.
