I would like to share the link below in spite of the fact that the closing date for entries is just two days away.

Many or perhaps most of us are quite comfortable with our fairly familiar environments and predictable daily routines, but, there are, among us, those who could be described as true adventurers or explorers. Blindness or other disabilities are not likely to stop those who feel the need to conquer the unknown, no matter what adaptations they have to make to achieve their goals. In fact,
constant adaptations and innovations may just be one of the advantages needed for success in this competition. However, the Holman prizes are not only about an exploration of the physical world by blind or visually impaired people. It has a much wider scope as described in the post at the link below.

“The ideal candidate is someone who is willing to probe their environment and eager to savor the richness of a world that is so often thought of as inaccessible to the blind. This exploration may involve travel, community organizing, scholarship, daring art or projects we haven’t even considered. We’re looking for intrepid travelers, creative problem solvers, effective communicators, natural ambassadors, passionate advocates, joyful builders, active boundary-pushers and experience seekers.”

Good luck to all participants. For more information, visit
