Dear Holman judges from 2017 and 2018,
Help us spread the word about the Holman Prize. Please send the info
below to your network.
We are now accepting applications for the
<http://www.holmanprize.org/>Holman Prize for Blind Ambition, and we
need your assistance getting the word out to attract the best applicants.
The Holman Prize is awarded annually to three blind individuals who
wish to push limits and change perceptions about blindness around the
world. It is named for
a nineteenth century blind explorer, who was the most prolific
traveler of anyone before the era of modern transportation. Each
winner will receive $25,000 to fund an adventure. From
blind people to be beekeepers in Uganda, to
solo across the Bosporus Strait, to
the first conference in Mexico for blind people led by blind people,
our past six winners' projects are as varied as the winners themselves.
If you know an ambitious blind person who will be 18 or older by
October 1, 2019, we ask you to encourage them to apply for the Holman
Prize. Applications close February 28 at 12 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.
A big part of the Holman Prize is about building community. To that
end, we have several ways people can engage with all things Holman
Prize on social media:
