The 1st Edition of this children’s literary contest was launched in 2017. During the call, we worked hand in hand with schools and families to break down stereotypes in society and promote equity throughout 5 Latin American countries.
The first edition of this international contest for children between 6 and 13 years of age counted on the participation of girls and boys from Argentina, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru and Colombia. In their stories they were asked to involve the characters proposed by Fundación Comparlante.
Our 1st character is a child with visual impairment
He is accompanied by his guide dog: an animal specially trained to provide assistance for the mobility and independence of the visually impaired.
Our 2nd character is a girl with motor disability
To facilitate her movement and autonomy, she has a wheelchair that adapts and responds to her needs.
Our 3rd character is a girl with Down Syndrome
Our 4th character is a child with hearing impairment
In order to communicate, deaf people use Sign Language: a complete system of communication which, just as the spoken language allows to transmit ideas and feelings, transforming words into gestures carried out mainly with hands.
