#HalloweenWithoutLimits Contest Celebrates Creative Costumes
In October, UCP hosted a social media contest to find the most inventive, creative and limitless costume for children (or adults) with disabilities. More than 50 ingenious entries appeared on UCP's Facebook and Twitter pages. Katherine Talbott submitted her daughter Layna's costume. Her version of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz blew everyone away, earning more than 8,000 votes. The top five vote-getters, plus the "Most Creative Costume," chosen by the UCP National staff will each win a 5-lb. chocolate bar thanks to our partner, Hershey's Chocolate Company. Read more and see the winner's pictures on UCP's blog.
