How to participate


Eligibility: You must be an individual with sickle cell living in Michigan and a December 2019 or Spring/Summer 2020 graduate from high school, college or trade school. Children of individuals with sickle cell who are graduating within these time frames are also eligible. 


Here’s how you can join the celebration:

1. Click here to complete the 2020 Graduate Form. To help you prepare your answers, the form asks for your name, address, email, phone number, graduation date, school or college, degree, your plans after graduation (50 words or less), something you learned that you think could help another student with sickle cell (50 words or less), and optional questions, including any honors/awards/scholarships you earned, a song or motto that best describes you, a favorite affirmation or quote that motivates or inspires you, and social media links to any other school or family celebrations you’d like us to share on our social media.

2. Email 1-2 photos of yourself to info@scdaami.org with “2020 Open House photo” in the subject line. These can be casual, your formal or informal senior picture, or you in your cap and gown. Include your full name (as you’d like us to recognize you) in the body of the email. Optional: Include a 20-30 second video of yourself telling us how you thrive in spite of sickle cell and your hopes and plans for your future.


Deadline to complete the 2020 Graduate Form and email us your photos (and optional video) is midnight Sunday, May 31st. No exceptions!


The Virtual Graduation Open House video will be posted on our web site (www.scdaami.org) and to our social media accounts on June 20th. Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn: @sicklecemichigan and Twitter: @sicklecellmi.
