Virtual Dystonia Zoo Day Chalk Art Contest

Virtual Dystonia Zoo Day on Saturday, September 25, 2021 includes a Chalk Art Contest!

DMRF Member Kit Jester is championing this friendly challenge after discovering a new talent and passion for creating beautiful chalk art in his driveway to encourage people.

How does the contest work? Create your very own chalk art masterpiece to promote dystonia awareness, celebrate Virtual Dystonia Zoo Day, or express something about your dystonia experience. Then, email DMRF a photo of your art to by  1:00PM Central time on Saturday, September 25 and you will be entered into a drawing for dystonia awareness merchandise and other treats. Winners will be announced during the live event broadcast. Winning artwork will also be featured in the Dystonia Dialogue.

Pro Tips:

  • Use chalk only – no spray paint or other media please.
  • Team up with someone or go solo—the choice is yours.
  • Your chalk art should be done on private property or only public spaces that do not prohibit chalk drawings.
  • Email a pic of your chalk art drawing to by 1:00PM Central time on Saturday, September 25 to be entered into the drawing.
