Hey all,

Someone just brought this away to my attention.  It doesn't have any $ award with it but thought I'd share anyway.  It's definitely seems to go to submitters who have created tech solutions to digital accessibility problems.

Wondering if Caption Hub or, more likely, our (Ward & SBCTC) state developed software testing program/etc. might be a good nominee for next years session.

Just putting it out there in case I'm forgetting some other solutions that WA folks have come up with already.

Hi Amy,

I figure you probably already got this email directly, but wanted forward it just in case. I wasn’t sure whether Steve McClowski’s class (or any other in your circle of accessibility)  would qualify, but it might offer the school recognition for its accessibility efforts.
