In 2017 we are running the My Red Letter competition again. This year is all about positive role models and acknowledging the champion in your life that helps you to embrace your dyslexia. The competition will run from Saturday 30th September 2017 to Tuesday 31st October 2017. 


This champion is someone who helps you find your path to happiness and success.  They might help you overcome your struggle with dyslexia or they may be someone you aspire to become. They could be someone that helps you realise your passions and goals or be the person that is there when you need a shoulder to lean on. Your champion can be someone in your family, your community or someone in the public eye.

The ‘Red Letter’ can be in the form of a letter, poem, story, drawing, painting, video, image or similar creative piece. We encourage our entrants to think ‘outside the square’ and use their creative imagination. Once written/created submit your entry electronically using the form below. Entries will be posted on social media so be sure that your entries do not include your personal details.

If sharing on social media you can use #myredletter and #dyslexia to help build awareness.
