2012/2nd Annual Halloween Costume Contest

Every child in this contest has Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome and is afflicted with various levels of physical, mental and growth delays. This contest was created in 2011 to give our kids a stage to tell the world how great they truly are. Last year, we gave away 4 iPads and this year we are giving away iPads and iTunes gift cards to the top contest winners. With new technology and apps designed to help children with disabilities, our children are are now given more tools to help further their development. As of the start of this contest, $2300 is available to donate to the top vote recipients, with an additional prize given to one contestant at random. Last year, we raised an additional $1000 during the course of the voting period and have a goal of doubling the prizes this year. Donations can be given near the vote button at the bottom of this page.

How to Vote

This page includes pictures of all of the children in their Halloween costumes that have entered the contest. Select the child you would like to vote for and hit the VOTE box at the bottom. There are 60 total entries, so make sure to check out all of the kids. Each household will only be able to vote once. VOTING WILL BE OPEN UNTIL SATURDAY NOVEMBER 10th, 11pm Central Time US. The voting tallies are kept secret and the results will be published on Sunday the 11th.

    Ava is such a doll. Her parents have been kind and strong. She has been to the hospital many times and their faith in God is still strong. Vote for Ava as this family is a strong family that is always being tested and their love and faith never waiver. Ava is a gift from God and she is so loving and sweet. My heart swells everytime I am able to see her. You can’t help but fall in love with Ava!

  37. The Gawel says:

    I am getting a lot of feedback from friends and family that after they vote they are not getting confirmation…just a black screen. This is on the first attempt to vote. Anyone else?

  38. The Gawels says:

    Also, everyone from my work let me know it says “thank you, we already have counted your vote” when they have not voted yet. Is it because we use the same server at work? Do they have to go home and do it?

  39. KevinO says:

    It’s a technical snafu on the black screen, not sure how to fix that right now. I will look into it. It puts them at the bottom of the page, in the footer. Yes, on the voting because the only way to keep people from potentially cheating is to block an IP address once a vote has been made. Doing it at home will work.

  40. Dulcie Canales says:
