Daylee Powe to represent Stephenville in Times Square video highlighting Down Syndrome.

This adorable photo of Daylee Powe was taken by Kimmie McKinney Photography.

Young Daylee Powe is about to become New York-famous.

The five-year-old Central Elementary kindergartener will appear in the bright lights of Broadway on Saturday, Sept. 9, as part of the annual National Down Syndrome Society Times Square Video presentation.

The one-hour video of roughly 500 photographs includes children, teens and adults with Down syndrome from all 50 states.

Kate Powe told Beneath the Surface News that after submitting an adorable photo of her daughter taken by Kimmie McKinney Photography, the family learned that Daylee had been chosen.

“My husband (Trevor) and I say all the time how much the world needed Daylee to show people the importance of inclusion and acceptance,” Kate said.

Daylee loves school and is enrolled in dance classes at Studio 6:14.

Her photo was selected from more than 2,400 entries that were submitted and will be broadcast on two JumboTron screens in the heart of Times Square from 8:30-9:30 a.m. on Sept. 9

The presentation will be live streamed on the National Down Syndrome Society’s Facebook page.
