Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
13 Elementary school students from the New England area were honored this week for submitting winning essays to the New England Disability Awareness Essay Contest.
The contest, hosted by Social Security Disability Help (http://www.socialsecurity-disability.org), asked students in grades two through six from New England to write an essay describing how someone with a disability has inspired them.
According to Social Security Disability Help, an informational website, the New England Disability Awareness Essay Contest was designed to promote disability awareness among elementary school students.
A representative from the organization commented, “It is our belief that by asking children at an early age to reflect on people with disabilities, the child is more likely to develop a lifelong understanding and respect for those who are disabled. The essay contest was a huge success and each essay we received was truly inspiring.”
The winning essays can be read on the Social Security Disability Help Blog. (http://www.socialsecurity-disability.org/blog/new-england-disability-awareness-essay-contest-winners)
The goal of Social Security Disability Help is to inform people of the SSD benefits that are available to them and provide them with a free evaluation of their disability claim. In addition to these services, Social Security Disability Help writes and distributes articles to outside organizations that wish to provide information about applying for Social Security Disability on their websites.
