Submissions are now open in the Innovative Design for Accessibility (IDeA) student competition, which aims to inspire students to use their creativity to develop innovative, cost-effective, and practical solutions to accessibility-related issues.
Students must present a solution to address one of the following accessibility barriers: attitudinal, organizational and systemic, architectural and physical, information and communication, or technological. The program offers prizes of up to $2,000 in each category.
The deadline to enter is May 31 and the first step in the process is to have a University representative nominate a student submission. Denice Shuker, accessibility and human tights manager in the Office of Human Rights and Equity and Accessibility, is co-ordinating UWindsor nominations.
