Gala 2020 Lagniappe Award
Nomination deadline: March 1st, 2020 at 5:00 PM
Award will be presented at: Rock Your Socks Hop Gala <>

The Down Syndrome Association of Brazos Valley presents our Lagniappe Award which recognizes local community member(s) who provide “a little extra” to individuals with Down syndrome and/or their families.

Why Lagniappe?
Lagniappe, a Louisiana French word, means to give more than what is asked for, a kindness, going above and beyond or as we at DSABV like to say, “a little extra.”  People with Down syndrome have “a little extra” in all or some of their cells because of the triplication of the 21st chromosome. Therefore, we want to honor those who give “a little extra” to people with Down syndrome and/or their families. For we know that in giving “a little extra”, you actually change the world. 

Please nominate someone you feel helps fulfill the mission of DSABV in equipping individuals with Down syndrome with the tools and experiences they need to live the life or their choosing. This may be through education, employment, friendship, therapy, medical care, or other services and supports.

We are fortunate to live in a loving and inclusive community that believes in the inherent worth, value and contributions of people with Down syndrome. Help us give a Lagniappe to those who give “a little extra” to our members with Down syndrome and/or their families.
