 2014 STAR Award Nomination Form

 A star was chosen to represent the Down Syndrome Indiana for several reasons:

Focus

Parents, siblings, educators, and other friends and family often describe individuals with Down syndrome as “stars”, or the centerof attention. The star logo recognizes that quality, and reminds usof our need to challenge ourselves and society to see all individualswith Down syndrome for their contributions to their community.

 Achievement

A star has long been a symbol of achievement. The star logo reminds us of the importance of all “achievements” of individuals with Down syndrome.

Inspiration

As a group of people familiar with the history of Down syndrome and its treatments, we recognize that we are still at the beginning of our journey to discover the full potential of individuals with Down syndrome. The star represents our collective reaching for a brighter future for all individuals with Down syndrome.

 Each year, Down Syndrome Indiana celebrates all individuals that have been instrumental in continuing their mission within the Down syndrome community. Three dedicated individuals who have made a long-term contributions to the Down syndrome community will be honored at the Annual Holiday Party with the reception of the reputable “STAR Award”.

 If you would like to nominate someone special for a “STAR Award”, please complete the following nomination form and return it to Jessica Hadsell, DSI Event Coordinator. The deadline for 2014 nominations is Monday, November 3rd at 5:00pm. Please note that while we appreciate their many contributions, DSI Staff and Board Members are ineligible for this award.

 Thank you,

Down Syndrome Indiana
