Rock Your Scar 2021

 

CHD warriors of ALL ages, show us how you embrace your CHD!  

Everyone’s journey with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) is different, but we all gain scars along the way both emotionally and physically. When survivors come through procedures or pass certain milestones whether it be an echocardiogram, a catherization or open-heart surgery, we say they handled it “like a rock star”! We want every child and adult with CHD to feel good about themselves and be proud of who they are-they ARE – Rock Stars! So come on, show us how you rock your scar!

The Rock Your Scar 2021 Photo Contest and National CHD Awareness campaign starts on January 1, 2021 and ends on January 31, 2021.  We welcome photo submissions of all who have been diagnosed with CHD; participants do not need to have a scar.  Mended Little Hearts recognizes and honors that not all who have been diagnosed with CHD are still with us.

Please only submit one photo, do not write on your photo and/or use a filter, and make sure any professional photos credit the photographer appropriately. If a contestant is 17 years or younger, the person entering the contestant’s photo in the contest must be their legal guardian, or have the legal guardian’s permission to enter the contestant.  

Photos are judged for creativity, quality, and demonstration of the theme of embracing your CHD.  While EVERYONE is a real winner, we will be selecting winners for each age category who will be announced during CHD Awareness Week, February 7-14 at 8 PM ET.  All winners will receive a gift card and other fun prizes. For complete rules please read ROCK YOUR SCAR PHOTO CONTEST RULES 2021

*Winners will be selected by an independent panel of judges in 2021*
