Amaze Grant Award Winner Selected by Deque

It has been a long time coming, but we have finally selected an Amaze Grant winner!  The decision process was long and difficult.  We received some excellent applications and learned about some really remarkable accessibility projects.

In addition to receiving the $10,000 grant, the winning applicant will receive a stipend of up to $5,000 to attend the 2014 California State University Northridge's Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference in San Diego (also known as CSUN, taking place March 17-22, 2013) and will deliver a presentation on their project.

We will be announcing the winner, their project, and the exciting collaboration between the winning project and Deque closer to CSUN. Stay tuned!
