An online information session Thursday, Oct. 5, will provide details on the 2024 Innovative Designs for Accessibility (IDeA) student competition.
The competition challenges UWindsor students to develop innovative, practical, and cost-effective solutions to address accessibility barriers which affect persons with disabilities. Entrants can win up to $500 to be applied to their UWinCard.
The competition runs through Feb. 2 and will accept ideas created and developed as a part of coursework.
“I can’t wait to see what creative solutions our students will come up with this year,” says Cherie Gagnon, accessibility manager in the Office of Human Rights, Equity, and Accessibility. “It’s exciting to see accessibility on the mind of students from so many faculties.”
She encourages interested students and faculty to attend Thursday’s session on MS Teams, which will feature a short presentation on the IDeA competition and how to enter, followed by a question-and-answer period. It will run 3:30 to 4 p.m.; click here to register for access to attend.
