National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is observed each year in October to celebrate the contributions of workers with disabilities and educate about the value of a workforce inclusive of their skills and talents.
The Governor’s Council on Disability (GCD) has initiated a poster contest to celebrate Disability Employment Awareness Month in Missouri. The posters are intended to spark a conversation about employment of people with disabilities. Artwork for the poster is selected by a submission and judging process and is open to Missouri artists (age categories: K-12 and Adults) with a disability.
The GCD will recognize outstanding Missouri artists with a disability. The winning artwork in each age category, along with a short bio about the artist, will be featured on a poster that will be promoted statewide during the month of October.
Deadline for submissions is August 1, 2019.
