Due August 20th, 2017 - The #IntheLimelight video contest was inspired by Lime Connect special advisor, Vint Cerf – Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist and “One of the Fathers of the Internet. As a leader in the disability community, Vint noted the serious lack of content around the experiences and success stories of people with disabilities. Lime Connect and Vint share the belief that sharing these stories will help to dispel misconceptions and highlight the value that individuals with disabilities bring to the world, universities, and the workplace and beyond. Lime Connect launched the first video contest in July 2017 with Vint Cerf as the sponsor.

A hard of hearing computer scientist paved the way for the modern Internet. A dyslexic businessman founded one the largest brokerage firms in the United States. A blind inventor is developing technology to make the world a more accessible place. Whether it’s as a student, intern, mid-level manager, or high- level executive, individuals with disabilities bring a unique perspective and diverse talents to the world, universities and the workplace each and every day.

Though many stories exist just like these, a lack of visibility contributes to societal misconceptions and stigmas about what it means to live and work with a disability. Help them change the narrative!

Lime Connect is launching the first ever #IntheLimelight Video Contest to showcase how university students and professionals are rebranding disability through achievement. Share your story of how you live #IntheLimelight and you can win up to $10,000 cash! Tell them about your disability, some of the daily challenges you may experience as a student or professional, and how you are rocking it!

Videos must be no longer than 2 minutes and 30 seconds in duration.
