The Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities and Houston Commission on Disabilities are seeking nominations for the Disability Advocate of the Year Awards.
Deadline for submitting nominations: Wednesday, August 31, 2011
The annual Mayor's Disability Advocate of the Year Awards (MDAYA) recognize and honor the contributions of advocates, who through volunteerism in the community, have made a significant impact in one or more of the following ways:
Three disability advocates will be selected: one with a disability, one without a disability and one junior advocate. In addition to the three awards, the MDAYA Selection Committee may, at its discretion, recognize a deceased individual with a posthumous award. The awards are based on the virtue and impact of their work.
