Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities Announces the 2014 Fred J. Epstein Youth Achievement Award Contest, Celebrating the Outstanding Accomplishments of Students with LD
Date:11/5/2013

Westport, CT (PRWEB) November 05, 2013

Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities, Inc. announces the 2014 Fred J. Epstein Youth Achievement Award Contest, a nationwide recognition for students 19 or younger with learning disabilities (LD) or ADHD. The $1,000 award will be made to a student who demonstrates talent and determination resulting in a notable accomplishment in any field including art, music, math, athletics, science or community service. Honorable Mentions will also be awarded.

The award will be presented at the organization’s annual benefit on the evening of Friday, April 25, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency in Old Greenwich, Connecticut. Transportation and hotel accommodations will be provided for the winning student and his/her parents.

Applications may be submitted by parents, teachers, coaches, or by students themselves, via a form posted on the organization's website at
http://www.smartkidswithld.org/2014-youth-achievement-award. The contest deadline is January 31, 2014. Winners will be posted on the organization’s website on April 1, 2014.

Dr. Devon MacEachron, an expert on giftedness and learning disabilities at the 2E Learners Center in New York City, said, “Too often, we focus primarily on these students’ weaknesses and fail to support their considerable strengths. Identifying and nurturing their strengths is vitally important to helping them succeed, both in the classroom and beyond.” The Youth Achievement Award helps to celebrate these children’s potential, and to combat the widespread misconception that children with LD are any less capable than their peers.

In June 2012, the Award was named in honor of the late Dr. Fred Epstein, the pioneering pediatric neurosurgeon
