Competition challenges students to address accessibility

Submissions are now open in the Innovative Design for Accessibility (IDeA) student competition, which challenges students to develop innovative, practical, and cost-effective solutions to accessibility-related issues.

Participants gain hands-on learning experience and contribute to expanding the accessibility culture on campus and beyond.

All UWindsor students are eligible to enter alone or as a group. Ideas created and developed as a part of course work may also be entered. All entrants will participate in making their “pitch” to the judging panel where they will explain their idea and how it would eliminate a barrier to accessibility for a chance to win cash prizes up to $500.

The competition is open now and closes Jan. 30, 2020.

More information about the competition, including examples of past entries, can be found on the Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility website.
