National Down Syndrome Society to Feature Nicholas Koutsoubos in Time Square Video Presentation

We are so proud of BHS student Nicholas Koutsoubos, who will be featured on the big screen in the heart of New York City as a part of the National Down Syndrome Society’s (NDSS) annual Times Square Video presentation on September 14. The Times Square Video presentation kicks off Down Syndrome Awareness Month on the morning of the NDSS Buddy Walk® in New York City.

Nicholas is a Kindergarten student at Wing Lake Developmental Center and Way Elementary School. He has participated in Young Athletes - Special Olympics, Top Soccer and the Miracle League of Michigan. He loves watching and playing basketball, listening and dancing to music, and spending time outside at the park with his sisters, Abigail and Aubrey.

Every year, NDSS reminds the world in a big way about the gifts that people with Down syndrome bring to their communities through a special video presentation on a jumbo screen in the heart of Times Square. The featured photographs highlight children, teens and adults with Down syndrome working, playing and learning alongside friends and family. These collective images promote acceptance and inclusion, which is the foundation of NDSS and the National Buddy Walk® Program. The video presentation is a reminder of the contributions, accomplishments and value of people with Down syndrome.

Nicholas’ photos was selected from over 3,000 entries in the NDSS worldwide call for photos. Approximately 500 photos will appear in the Times Square video.
