Connect Ability Challenge

AT&T has partnered with NYU and RESNA to design an exciting technology contest called the Connect Ability Challenge. AT&T will be awarding $100k in prizes to individual developers and small business that deliver software or apps to the Challenge review board before June 24, 2015. The prize money will be given in honor of the ADA 25th Anniversary.

Visit the Challenge website. All the rules and guidelines are listed there and AT&T has created videos for four “exemplars.” These are people with disabilities who talk about how they use technology today and how technology could continue to improve their lives.
