Nominations sought for Web Accessibility Awards

This award of $1,000 will be given to two winners each year during the four-year implementation of Purdue's Web Accessibility Policy. Award recipients must use the monetary award to further their efforts in the area of accessible Web design. The awards are sponsored by a grant from Google and the Office of the Vice President for Ethics and Compliance.
