Humans of Dementia Storytelling Contest 2021

Attention High School and College Students…

Do you know someone who is living with or someone who has passed from Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia?

Tell their story today for the chance to win a cash prize and attend a virtual celebration with Seth and Lauren Rogen. 

Together, we can shine a light on dementia!

The contest ends on June 1, 2021.

Stories are powerful tools.  

This year, HFC is accepting submissions to Humans of Dementia in two categories: written and photo. 

Students may enter both categories.

About the Contest

This contest focuses on intergenerational storytelling: talking to a person or people, exchanging memories, and swapping anecdotes all before writing your story and/or taking your photos.  

Who was the person you are profiling before the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s or dementia took hold? 

This is your chance to tell their story. In telling it, you will be joining a movement of people who are bringing light and awareness to this space. 

Together, we can shine a light on dementia!  

To the extent possible, we encourage entrants to interview the person living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. If this is not possible, then we encourage you to talk to and interview family members and/or friends of your loved one. 

Interviews will be integral to your storytelling as they provide you different perspectives, insight, anecdotes, as well as quotes, all of which will greatly enrich your story and paint a better picture of who you are profilingUse the voice recorder app on your phone to capture the conversations.
