South Dakota Chapter
Every year, more than half a million babies are born too soon, over 12,000 of them right here in South Dakota. With your help, we work to improve the health of babies and support families if something does go wrong.

In addition, we are recognizing the hard work of the dedicated nurses in the state of South Dakota with our first annual Nurse of the Year awards to be held Saturday, February 15th in Sioux Falls. Click on "events" to read more about this incredible evening.
Request for Proposals for Community Awards
The goal of the March of Dimes community awards program is to identify and fund community-based programs addressing the health concerns of pregnant women and infants in South Dakota. Proposals must address the March of Dimes mission of improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Priority will be given to projects that meet one or more of the following criteria: a) are evidence-based; b) include measurable outcomes; and, c) promote equity in birth outcomes. Proposals are due April 30, 2014 and the project year will run from July 1, 2014 - June 30, 2015. To request a community award application contact Wendy Lewis, firstname.lastname@example.org .
Through programs and services in communities across South Dakota, we promote healthy pregnancies and babies, and work to prevent premature birth and birth defects. We educate moms and support families in need.
