Got a good IDeA for an innovative, cost-effective and practical solution to accessibility-related barriers in the community? Then it’s time to get in the game.

The Council of Ontario Universities, in partnership with the Government of Ontario, presents the second annual Innovative Designs for Accessibility (IDeA) student competition targeting creative minds among Ontario’s university undergraduate students.

Working individually or in teams with industry, government and community partners, including members of the disability community, entrants are directed to identify an accessibility-related issue, develop a plan to address the issue and create an innovative and unique solution to it.

Entries are welcome in one of five categories – systemic/organizational; physical/architectural; technology; information and communications; and attitudinal. Deadline is 11:59 p.m. Sunday, April 14.

For more information on how to submit, visit the IDeAs website, idea2013.wordpress.com/.
