Interested in winning an iPad mini? Well 
BlindHow.com is giving a brand new one away this 
spring and all you have to do is tell us about your job and how you do it.
Blind people across the country and around the 
world work in every field imaginable, including 
but not limited to medicine, office and clerical 
work, education, engineering, meteorology, and 
law. At 
<http://www.blindhow.com/>www.blindhow.com we 
want to know how you are doing your job and what 
techniques you use to get the job done right. It 
is our mission to educate everyone (both blind 
and sighted) about the capabilities of the blind 
by demonstrating how we as blind people are able to succeed in the workforce.
We believe that it is not blindness that creates 
a barrier to independence and employment. Rather, 
it is the lack of accurate information as well as 
the misconceptions and stereotypes that create 
the greatest obstacles to meaningful employment 
for the blind. In order to change these 
misconceptions, we are starting a 6-month 
campaign to hear from as many blind people as possible about their work.
As promised, someone will be the lucky winner of 
a free iPad mini. All you have to do to be 
eligible is submit a post on our website telling 
about your work and how it’s done. You can earn 
points for completing different submissions. For 
every 5 points you earn, you will receive one 
entry in the iPad Mini drawing. So if you have 30 
points, your name goes into the drawing 6 times, 
40 points gets your name in 8 times, and so on.
·         A written description about your job 
and the alternative techniques you use will earn you 10 points.
·         A written post along with an audio 
demonstration of the alternative techniques you 
use will earn you 20 points in our iPad drawing.
·         A written description along with a 
recorded video demonstration will earn you 30 points.
·         If you refer someone to blindhow.com 
and they submit a post about their job, you will 
gain an additional 5 points. To earn referral 
points, both you and the person you refer must 
send us an email using the email link on 
blindhow.com to tell us who you referred or who referred you.
Our employment contest will run from October 1 to 
March 30, and we will draw our iPad winner in May 
at our state convention for the National 
Federation of the Blind of Utah. So please submit 
your posts, and refer more people to increase 
your chances of winning. Good luck to all who participate.
The ultimate goal of this project is to use this 
information to help educate the public about what 
we do as blind people, and hopefully we can open 
more doors to make it easier for qualified blind people to find employment.
