“Employment Idol” Contest Announcement
people with disabilities
want to work,
are great employees,
and can contribute to the Connecticut work force
when given the opportunity.
The video was so popular that Connect-Ability has agreed to support the development of a third “Employment Idol” video. DDS will use this third video to continue to promote the employment of people with intellectual disabilities in CT. The 3rd Annual Employment Idol contest will be accepting applications until January 15, 2010. Winners will be selected from the entries submitted. Winners will be notified by February 15, 2010 and will be guests at the 2010 People First Conference. We encourage all people with intellectual disabilities who have overcome challenges to be employed and who currently work in a real job for real pay to submit a contest application.
