We hope you like this wonderful advertising campaign, which was created by LatinWorks, an award-winning international firm. We are honored that they chose Special Olympics Texas to be the recipient of their hard work. We thank them for their advocacy on behalf of more than 51,300 Special Olympics athletes in Texas—and for creating a vehicle that will help us reach out to the thousands more potential athletes who have not yet joined the Special Olympics family. We also thank the amazing artist Queenie Liao for lending her talents to this project. We hope that her inspiring and surprising artwork will prompt everyone to see the abilities in our children and adults who have intellectual disabilities.
Here is the first in a series of print and video PSA's. Use #seeabilities and #sotx when sharing on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
