Wisconsin BPDD Awards First Original Story Winner
Date:7/17/2013

Madison, WI (PRWEB) July 17, 2013

The Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD), http://www.wi-bpdd.org, announced today the first winner in its storytelling campaign, "Better Together: Sharing Stories, Sharing Lives." The campaign celebrates the many ways ordinary people come together to support one another across their personal and professional lives. Its first winner, Craig M. of Port Washington, WI, will receive a Kindle Fire for his original story.

In his story, Craig shares an account of how he and his wife developed a friendship with a resident they met while working at a group home for people with developmental disabilities. The young man, Kevin, had spent his childhood at a state institution and, lacking any involvement from his biological parents, was taken in by Craig’s family and became an adopted member of their household. For 24 years, "Kevin has been an irreplaceable member of our family and has been a powerful influence on the direction of our personal, professional and community life," said Craig.

The BPDD is looking for its next winning story. Anyone can participate. People living with a developmental disability - or who have a family member, friend, coworker or employee with a developmental disability - can visit the BPDD on Facebook or http://www.bettertogether.wi-bpdd.org to share their story and learn more. Storytellers have until July 31 to submit a story for the next prize drawing.

One storyteller a month
