National Organization on Disability Invites Entries for Accessible America Awards Program
Deadline: October 31, 2006

The National Organization on Disability (<a href=""></a>) is calling on America’s mayors and chief elected officials to enter their communities in the sixth annual Accessible America awards competition, open to all United States cities and towns.

With support from program sponsors UPS and Wal-Mart, communities will compete for $35,000 in cash prizes. Entrants will showcase how their citizens with disabilities are participating in and contributing to local community life.

To enter the 2006 Accessible America Competition, a community must submit an official Accessible America application signed by the mayor or chief elected official, describing how the city or town (or county representing unincorporated communities within its borders) provides opportunities for citizens with disabilities to participate fully in community life.

To read more about the Accessible America Competition and/or to download the official entry form and guidelines, visit the N.O.D. Web site.
