Nominations Due Date: October 1, 2021
On September 17, 2021, the FCC released a Public Notice to extend the deadline for nominations for the 10th FCC Chair’s Awards for Advancement in Accessibility (Chair’s AAA). The nomination period ends on October 1, 2021.
This year, the FCC is soliciting nominations for innovative practices, technologies, and organizations that have creatively leveraged communications and broadband technology to break down accessibility barriers and ensure that people with disabilities have been able to participate equally in our increasingly connected world. The Commission is particularly interested in nominations that have addressed the needs of people with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic in education, work, and civic life.
For information about what to include in the nomination, see the Public Notice. Award winners will be recognized at a ceremony to be held later this year. For information about past winners, visit: http://www.fcc.gov/FCCAAA.
