Henry B. Betts Award to Honor Individual for Work on Behalf of People With Disabilities

Deadline: October 6, 2006

The American Association of People with Disabilities (<a href=""></a>) is accepting nominations for the Henry B. Betts Award. This annual award honors an individual whose work and scope of influence have significantly improved the quality of
life for people with disabilities.

Typically, one outstanding living individual is selected each year to receive the award. That person receives an unrestricted $50,000 cash award at AAPD’s annual Leadership Gala in Washington, D.C.

The recipient of the Henry B. Betts Award will be a person at the pinnacle of his or her career. While the award is not a lifetime achievement award, the recipient must have professional accomplishments over his/her lifetime that justify receipt of the award. Successful nominees will have demonstrated a strong vision and understanding of how to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities; possess a record of efforts and accomplishments that have affected a wide disability population; and have served as a powerful force for change, enhancing the opportunities for people with disabilities to participate fully in all aspects of society.

A nomination may be made by any individual.

Visit the AAPD Web site for complete award program information and nomination form.
