Announce the Fourth Annual

William E. Bradford Memorial Award

The purpose of the award is to honor and preserve William E. Bradford’s dedication to bringing the printed word to blind and visually impaired people by supporting the efforts of visually impaired people to access educational and/or vocational opportunities. The award of $2,000 may be used for purchase or equipment, books and services identified in the award applications by individuals residing in the District of Columbia.

The Bradford Award Committee of the WVRB will solicit applications from the blind and visually impaired community, review all applications and recommend applicant(s) to the Board, which will make a final decision on the award at its December meeting.

The recipient of the award and his or her quest will be invited to the Annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner in late January to meet members and volunteers, explain how he or she intends to use the award, and accept the check.
