Employment of People With Disabilities Journalism Contest

Journalism Contest

The winner of the 2013 Journalism Contest receives a four-year scholarship to the South Carolina state-supported institution of his or her choice provided, of course, that the winner is otherwise qualified.
The scholarship pays for undergraduate tuition and fees. Each institution has its own definition of tuition and fees, which may or may not include room and board.
The winner must be able to verify financial need to the chosen state-supported institution, which may require completion of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Colleges and universities recommend that students in financial need complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1 of the year they will enroll to establish eligibility for student aid. This may require providing income tax return information.
The scholarship may be canceled if the recipient does not maintain general scholastic and conduct standards established by the institution.

2013 Journalism Contest theme

A strong workforce is an inclusive workforce: What can you do?
Your article must address the theme: “A strong workforce is an inclusive workforce: What can you do?” "Your article should reflect the diversity of skills people with disabilities offer, challenge common misconceptions about disability employment and reinforce the message that, at work, it’s what people CAN do that matters."
