Video Contest for ADHD Awareness Month 2017

What have you found to help yourself, your children or others, successfully manage ADHD? Are you interested in making a short video sharing your experience or highlighting a helpful strategy as part of the ADHD Awareness Month’s video contest?

As a Board Member and representative of the ADHD Coaches Organization (ACO), I am thrilled to join other volunteers in the ADHD Awareness Month Coalition in sharing information about ADHD during October’s ADHD Awareness Month. This year’s theme is “Knowing is Better: ADHD through the Lifespan.”

As part of ADHD Awareness Month 2017, the Coalition will be holding a video contest asking people to share a one- to two-minute video about their experience or their best tips for living well with ADHD. Videos can be submitted by:

  • children under the age of 18 who have ADHD
  • parents with a child with ADHD under the age of 18
  • adults of all ages living with ADHD
  • professionals (coaches, counselors, teachers, doctors and others who work with children or adults with ADHD)

Prizes will awarded to winners in the Child, Parent and Adult categories.

Stay tuned for more information about the video contest’s rules, submission guidelines, and timelines. Check the website,, for updated information. In the meantime, start thinking about the experiences or tips that you might want to share in a video.

This video contest is part of ADHD Awareness Month, October 2017, brought to you by the ADHD Awareness Month Coalition. The mission of the ADHD Awareness Month Coalition is to educate the public about ADHD. The coalition members include the ADHD Coaches Organization (ACO), the Attention Deficit Disorder Association (ADDA), and Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD).
