Shining Star Program



All children are special, but children with epilepsy are Shining Stars! This program connects youth & teens 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 & teens ages 17 and under are welcome.

TO REGISTER: Complete the shining star application form, attach a photo, and tell us a little about yourself: your talents, your hobbies, your epilepsy. We’ll help you shine!
