Mayor's Advisory Committee for People with Disabilities Annual Awards

Each year the Nashville Mayor's Advisory Committee for People with Disabilities holds an annual Awards recognition ceremony in conjunction with the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center. For more than 26 years this committee has been recognizing people for their contributions to the disability community.

The committee is looking to find people who go above and beyond to aid the disability community in some way.

  • Perhaps you know a person who volunteers for an organization that serves the disability community?
  • Is there an educator who goes out of their way to assist a special needs student?
  • Do you know someone with a disability who excels and inspires the people they come in contact with?
  • How about an agency that serves the disability community that needs to be given their due props?
  • Is there a company or store that goes out of their way to employ persons with disabilities?
  • Do you know an artist, performer or athlete that excels and inspires despite their obstacles?

These are just a few of the examples of the people and organizations we are looking for!
