The Governor’s Council on Disability (GCD) is currently accepting nominations for its 3rd annual Youth Leadership and 24th annual Inclusion awards. The deadline for submitting nominations is December 15, 2015.

The Youth Leadership Award recognizes an outstanding Missouri youth (age 16-26) with a disability that has demonstrated exemplary leadership by making a difference in their community. Youth with disabilities can be nominated online at http://disability.mo.gov/gcd/youthleadershipaward.htm.

The Inclusion Award is presented annually to recognize and honor a Missouri resident, organization, business or state/local government division that illustrates excellence in leadership for the “best of the best inclusion practices.” Innovative universal design and assistive technology concepts that incorporate people with disabilities may also be submitted. The nomination form and criteria are available at http://disability.mo.gov/gcd/inclwin.htm.
