ABOUT THE TIMES SQUARE VIDEO PRESENTATION
Each year, the National Down Syndrome Society highlights in a big way about the gifts that people with Down syndrome bring to their communities through a special video presentation that plays on a jumbo screen in the heart of the Times Square before their annual Buddy Walk. This time every year, the NDSS receives over a thousand photo submissions for the video contest. The featured photographs highlight individuals young and old from all walks of life with Down syndrome working, playing and learning alongside friends and family. These images promote acceptance and inclusion, which is one of the main goals of the NDSS and the National Buddy Walk® Program.
