Disability Awareness Month Shoe Design Contest
The Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU) is proud announce the return of the Disability Awareness Month: Shoe Design Contest for 2018. In an effort to bring higher levels of awareness to students of ALL abilities, CCIU is partnering with Chester County Art Teachers and their 6th – 12th grade students for a fun, artistic challenge.
Chester County Art Teachers are invited to engage their students in developing a shoe design that best represents and articulates the awareness, acceptance and celebration of all abilities. Each participating school will review their students' artwork and select one top design per school to be submitted to CCIU for placement in the 2018 online contest. All visitors to the CCIU site between April 2 - 6 will be encouraged to vote for their favorite via an online link. The winning design will be brought to life by Laura Jane Craig, a custom TOMS shoe painter, and the winning student artist will be presented the final shoes to keep with associated press coverage.
This is the second year the CCIU has been conducting this awareness initiative. Featured below are our past two winning designers: 2017 winner Kaylee Uba from North Coventry Elementary School and 2016 winner Hannah Williams from Coatesville 9-10 Center.
Congratulations to our 2018 shoe design contest winner!
