'It's normal to be different' competition

I'm back from a week's vacation and wanted to let you know about this contest for children and youth ages 5-21 to be part of a media awareness campaign called "It's Normal to be Different."

The International Association for Life Quality is looking for songs, stories or poems that break through stereotypes about people with disabilities.

Submissions can be about any type of disability – developmental, physical, learning – and can be written by a youth with a disability or without (e.g. a sibling or friend).

They're open to Canadian entries.
