Labor Department Announces Disability Employment App Challenge - Deadline August 23
The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) has launched its first disability-related application challenge. The goal of the "app challenge" is to create innovative tools to improve job opportunities for people with disabilities. ODEP is looking for apps that help employers find job seekers with disabilities, provide skill-building and job training tools, increase transportation options and improve the accessibility of communication technology. Awards with cash prizes totaling $10,000 will be given to the top three submissions. Register for the contest by creating an account. Submission deadline is August 23, 2012.
