In conjunction with the Make it a Red Letter Day campaign we are running a Make it a Red Letter Day competition for children between the ages of 5 and 18 years.

Entrants must write a Red Letter about dyslexia to a Politician, School Principal, Teacher, the Media or a person they feel may have an influence in creating change for dyslexia. These letters will be heartfelt and tell the receiver about the struggles that are faced every day by dyslexic learners and they will ask for change at a school, state and national level.

The ‘Red Letter’ can be in the form of a letter, poem, story, drawing, painting or similar creative piece. We encourage our entrants to think ‘outside the square’ and use their creative imagination. We also encourage our entrants to not use spell or grammar checking options.  Once written/created submit an image of the ‘Red Letter’ with an entry form by email to myredletter@gmail.com then send the letter to its intended recipient with a copy of the cover letter.

Feel free to also send a copy to a local newspaper, radio station or television station in order to amplify the message.  Some very special schools might even promote “Red Letter” noticeboards where letters can be read by the wider school community.  However, for many dyslexic learners who struggle with self-consciousness and anxiety, for them to write, address and attach a stamp to a letter asking for change will be an immeasurably powerful message and is at the very heart of this initiative. If sharing on social media you can use #myredletter and #dyslexia to help build awareness.

Our generous sponsors have donated over $10,000.00 in prizes, please go to our Sponsor page to learn more about them and support them.
