2011 Concessioner Accessibility Achievement Award - Improving Accessibility in Commercial Services

The National Park Service is now accepting nominations for the Concessioner Accessibility Achievement Award - Improving Accessibility in Commercial Services. This award is one of eight Accessibility Awards given out by the NPS. The Concessioner Accessibility Achievement Award recognizes exemplary efforts that significantly improve accessibility for visitors with disabilities to concessioner operated programs and facilities within the National Parks.

Projects and programs may address programmatic accessibility (access to programs and services) as well as architectural access. Successful projects will demonstrate innovation, creativity, and success in providing more than just minimum requirements for accessibility, going above and beyond the normal requirements.

Nominees must fill out the NPS National Accessibility Achievement Award Nomination Form and submit a limited amount of relevant photographs, publications, audiovisual aids, or other documents that directly relate to the program or project and that contribute to the judges' understanding of the nomination.
