The nonprofit organization Hilarity for Charity – with support from AARP, Generations United, Memory Well, and the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) – is announcing a writing contest for high school and college students from across the U.S. and Canada to pen the best profile of someone who is living with or who has passed from Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.
Nearly 50 million people worldwide have dementia. Their stories deserve to be told, even if they can no longer tell them themselves.
The organization hopes that students will join others in shining a light on dementia by submitting a loved one’s story.
Tons of prizes are up for grabs! Winners will be featured across all platforms and invited to celebrate at an exclusive 2020 gathering.
