Press releases

USA Games - June 14-21

Press releases for upcoming events are posted approximately 10 days prior to the event.

Contact Jon Buzby for copies of past press releases.


Language guidelines

We use people-first language. Two examples: (1) Use the phrase individuals, persons or people with intellectual disabilities, rather than "mentally retarded" individuals or people, and (2) people have intellectual disabilities, rather than are "suffering from, afflicted with or a victim" of intellectual disabilities.

Recommended People-first Language Guidelines

Logo usage

There are very specific guidelines when using the Special Olympics Delaware logo. Please contact Ruth Coughlan at or 302-831-4048 for usage guidelines.

Press credentials

All working members of the media with a company credential are asked to check in at the Information Tent/Table upon arrival at the event so that we can provide you with anything you might need for your coverage. Any other photographer, writer or videographer, who does not have an official working media credential, should contact Jon Buzby prior to the event to make arrangements to receive appropriate credentials.
