Video Contest - Show Off Your AT!

Graphic of Show Off Your Assistive Technology Video Contest

Does Assistive Technology (AT) play a role in your life?

Do you use an assistive device to get things done, or to make your life easier?

Have you modified a device to make it work better, or come up with your own device?

Then show off your AT!

Share your ideas and win some cash doing it.

The purpose of the contest is to showcase the creative ways people with disabilities use assistive technology in their daily lives. Many people with disabilities use assistive technologies to accomplish tasks they otherwise could not. Sometimes they modify a commercial device or improvise their own device to meet a specific need. By sharing your ideas and the solutions you created, you can motivate and inspire others who are looking for solutions of their own.
