Defining the New American Dream Video Contest
To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the American’s with Disabilities Act, the National Disability Institute (NDI) has launched a nationwide video contest encouraging persons with disabilities and their families to capture their American Dream and how they are working to achieve it on video.
The American’s with Disabilities Act is a landmark piece of federal legislation that opened up services and employment opportunities to Americans with disabilities. The Defining the New American Dream video contest is a meaningful way for veterans and other Americans with disabilities and their families to share their powerful stories and showcase their economic self-sufficiency, happiness, and hopes for the future, says Michael Morris, JD, Executive Director of the National Disability Institute in Washington D.C., “Our goal with this contest is to highlight the positive impact the Americans with Disabilities Act has had on the lives of the more than 54 million Americans with disabilities and on society at large.”
Participants are encouraged to submit a three-minute video that tells the story of how they are working to achieve their American Dream. The video contest begins July 1, 2010 and all entries must be received by August 13, 2010.
One grand prize winner will receive $1,000 and a trip to Washington D.C. for their winning video to be viewed at NDI’s Real Economic Impact Tour’s National Kick-off.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
