Inclusion Champion Award to Honor Efforts on Behalf of Youth With Disabilities
Deadline: December 1, 2008

The Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation (,  which works to help young people with disabilities to lead full and productive lives, is accepting nominations for the MEAF Inclusion Champion Award.

The award honors individuals who have made significant efforts to promote the full inclusion of youth with disabilities in society. The focus of the efforts may include, but is not limited to, helping to create a culture of inclusion within an organization or community or developing innovative strategies for inclusive programming in school activities, afterschool programs, community service, and leadership development.

The criteria for selection include evidence that attitudes have changed and inclusion has been embraced due to the individual’s efforts; measurable impact on the lives of young people with and without disabilities due to the individual’s efforts; and sustainability of inclusion outcomes.

The Inclusion Champion Award will be presented during the Kids Included Together annual conference (<a href=””></a>) in March 2009. The award consists of a trophy and $1,000 donated to the charity of the champion’s choice.
