Launched in July 2011, the Once Upon A Time Contest encouraged parents and caregivers to submit an original written work inspired by their child's experience with type 1 diabetes. The winning entry was determined by a panel of independent judges. The Schuhmachers were awarded a five-day/four-night trip to the 2012 children with DIABETES annual conference, Friends for Life, in Orlando, FL, from July 3-8, 2012.
