The Alliance for Equality of Blind Canadians' President's Contest is back!
View the wall and see our progress to date!
Would you like a chance to win $500 cash? Help achieve our goal! We're building a virtual wall to represent the foundation of a new internship program for postsecondary students that AEBC intends to launch in 2014. This program will afford internship opportunities to students who wish to learn more about working with the blind, deaf-blind and partially sighted community, to develop training materials for professionals serving our community, and to generally support our community. The funds raised will serve as the seed money for the internship program in 2014 and into the future.
The program will fund stipends to allow AEBC to offer internship opportunities for students in sociology, psychology, political science, journalism, social work, and related fields. Through this program, AEBC will offer students a chance to develop their skills while at the same time increasing the ability of AEBC to deliver meaningful programs and seminars to caregivers, parents, and the blind, deaf-blind and partially sighted themselves (e.g. the development of an information seminar and presentation targetted at medical students on how to best interact with blind, deaf-blind and partially sighted patients).
When you join as a President's Contest Supporter, and add a virtual "brick" on our Wall, you will also be entered into a draw for a $500 cash prize! In fact, for every dollar that you (or someone you refer to AEBC) donates before April 15, 2013, will automatically receive one additional entry into the contest!
The President's contest is now complete. The winner will be announced after April 26th at the AGM.
One $500 cash prize to be drawn on April 26, 2013. Chances of winning will depend on the number of entries received. No purchase necessary. Selected winner will be required to answer a mathematical skill-testing question. Read full contest rules
