Shining Stars

All children are special, but children with epilepsy are Shining Stars!  This program connects youth from across MN and ND with other families living with epilepsy and encourages them to “reach for the stars” despite any challenges created by epilepsy.

There is no cost and youth ages 18 and under are welcome.  Complete the registration, attach a photo and tell us a little about yourself: your talents, your hobbies, your epilepsy.  We’ll help you shine.

Participants receive:

•    A star medallion
•    Program certificate
•    A dedicated page in our quarterly newsletter.
•    Special invitations to EFMN events.
•    BEST OF ALL – opportunities to connect and meet the other 300         Shining Stars and their families

This program is sponsored in part by:

Shining Stars can become Winning Kids!  Our Winning Kid program not only empowers youth, it also creates opportunities for leadership in the epilepsy community and helps spread awareness about seizures.
