Posredujemo poziv organizacije LightHouse for the Blind iz Združenih držav Amerike. V pozivu vabijo vse ambiciozne slepe, da sodelujejo na nagradnem natečaju za Holmanovo nagrado v višini $25,000.

Holmanova nagrada zagotavlja finančno podporo trem slepim posameznikom pri njihovih projektih. Od leta 2017, ko so pričeli podeljevati nagrado, so finančno podprli devet oseb (iz petih držav in štirih kontinentov). Nagrada se imenuje po Jamesu Holmanu, slepem popotniku in raziskovalcu iz 19. stoletja.

Postopek se začne z izzivom: slepi kandidati morajo pripraviti 90-sekundni YouTube posnetek. Več informacij o sami nagradi in postopku prijave je na voljo v spodnjem sporočilu in na spletni strani Holmanove nagrade v primeru dodatnih vprašanj se obrnite na : holman@lighthouse-sf.org.

Prijave za nagrado Holman 2020 se zaključijo 15. marca 2020 ob 17.00 po standardnem pacifiškem času.
Vabljeni k sodelovanju!

Originalno besedilo v angleščini s povezavami:

The 2020  Holman Prize for Blind Ambition is requesting applications through March 15.

Now in its 4th year, the LightHouse for the Blind in San Francisco’s Holman Prize for Blind Ambition is an international competition that is awarded annually to three blind individuals who wish to push their limits. It is named for James Holman, a nineteenth century blind explorer, who was the most prolific traveler before the era of modern transportation. Each winner will receive up to $25,000 to support their adventure. From traversing the Bosporus Straight via solo kayak, to hosting the first conference in Mexico for blind children and their families led by blind professionals, to creating an app to enable blind citizen scientists to participate in the search for exoplanets by listening to space, our nine winners so far (hailing from five countries on four continents), have each found unique ways to forever change the world’s perception of blindness.

A big idea, a quick application form and a 90-second pitch video are all that is needed to apply. For inspiration, here is the YouTube Playlist of 2019 Holman Prize Finalists.

LightHouse is welcoming applications through March 15, at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. Applications and information are available here: holmanprize.org/applyIf you have any questions, please contact us at holman@lighthouse-sf.org.
