Our 2021 to 2022 Artwork and Drawing Contests had wonderful submissions from Elementary, Middle, and High Schoolers across the state.
The winning students and schools were invited to attend Developmental Disabilities Day at the Legislature, where they were honored online for their inspiring work by the Maryland Department of Disabilities, the Maryland State Department of Education, and Maryland First Lady Yumi Hogan.
Check out their artwork in the video below, which was played during Developmental Disabilities Day at the Legislature in front of hundreds of advocates across the state!
