A hard of hearing computer scientist paved the way for the modern Internet. A dyslexic businessman founded one the largest brokerage firms in the United States. A blind inventor is developing technology to make the world a more accessible place. Whether it’s as a student, intern, mid-level manager, or high- level executive, individuals with disabilities bring a unique perspective and diverse talents to the world, universities and the workplace each and every day.
Though many stories exist just like these, a lack of visibility contributes to societal misconceptions and stigmas about what it means to live and work with a disability. Help us change the narrative!
Lime Connect is launching the first ever #IntheLimelight Video Contest to showcase how university students and professionals are rebranding disability through achievement. Share your story of how you live #IntheLimelight and you can win up to $10,000 cash!
How to Participate:
In (1) 1–2 minute video, please tell us about your disability, some of the daily challenges you may experience as a student or professional, and how you are rocking it!
We’re awarding a total of $25,000 in cash prizes to the top videos, provided by Lime Connect special advisor, Vint Cerf – Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist, “One of the Fathers of the Internet,” and the inspiration behind this contest!
