Best Practices Award

The Public/Non-Profit Best Practices Award

The Ohio Governor’s Council on People with Disabilities is seeking nominations for the “Public/Non-Profit Best Practices Award”. This award is given out annually to one non-profit and one public agency, with a successful record of promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities within the community and workforce.

The purpose of this award is to honor the nominee judged to have implemented innovative and progressive methods of improving the quality of life, for Ohio residents with disabilities. The agencies selected are considered a symbol of all who have significantly contributed to employment opportunities and community involvement for people with disabilities. It is anticipated that their example will inspire others in State government and non-profit communities to realize ability rather than disability as an important factor in employment and community inclusion.

These awards are presented at the Annual Awards Ceremony of the Governor’s Council on People with Disabilities held annually in September, 2017.
