Just a quick reminder to all students to get your entries in TODAY for our Autism Connects student design challenge! Our distinguished panel of judges, which includes Yves Behar (fuseproject), Lisa Strausfeld (Pentagram), Richard Seymour (Seymourpowell) and our own Allan Chochinov, is eagerly awaiting your entries. Don't miss this opportunity to help individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) better connect with the world around them through a well-designed communication solution.
The jury will award a grand prize of $5,000 to one individual or team. In addition, Autism Speaks will award creators (or one representative in the case of a team entry) of the top three designs a $1,000 stipend and registration fees to attend the 2011 International Meeting for Autism Research, to be held May 12 to 14, 2011 in San Diego, CA, where they will be invited to present their design concept.
