EtsyKids Design Challenge for April: Awareness

Posted Thursday, April 14, 2011

Each month EtsyKids Team members are challenged to create a unique item within a chosen theme. April is Autism Awareness month and “Awareness” is our new challenge, picked by our last winner Fabric Blooms. In the 1970s, the Autism Society of America proclaimed April as National Autism Awareness Month to raise awareness of the disorder. Today, one in 150 children are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, according to the Centers for Disease Control. This month we would like to show support for the autism community and promote the rights of individuals with autism, encouraging respect for their differences.

EtsyKids members will have until April 19th to submit their entries, and voting will be open to everybody from Thursday, April 21st to Wednesday, April 27th. So, be sure to come back to the EtsyKids blog for a new post on the 21st to see all of the entries and VOTE! In the meantime, please click here to get a sneak peek at some exciting entries so far!
