This inspirational dinner celebrating National Disability Awareness Month in March provides an opportunity to present scholarships to high school seniors who have cerebral palsy and to also recognize winning essayists of our annual “Attitude” Essay Contest. The competition encourages Indiana children in grades 3rd – 8th to write essays about how attitudes can serve as bridges or barriers for people with disabilities. Also honored at this event are key people making a difference in our agency and the clients we serve.
