Athens State student places in state disability poster contest

— Athens State University art student Jeanette Blasios was recently awarded second place for the Alabama postsecondary division in the 2013 “Ability Counts” poster journalism competition.

Blasios will receive $200, a certificate and a citation for meritorious service will be presented to her professor, Dr. Pamela Keller. 

The contest is sponsored annually by the Alabama Governor’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities. The contest focuses attention on the abilities of Alabamians with disabilities and promotes a greater awareness of the contributions that people with disabilities make to the workplace and the community.

Students from around the state competed in either the journalism essay or the poster contest. The poster contest included entries in three categories: junior high, high school and postsecondary.

The Alabama Governor’s Committee on the Employment of Disabilities is a program of the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services. The committee’s mission is to enable Alabama’s children and adults with disabilities to achieve their maximum potential.

Blasios will be honored along with other state winners at an awards luncheon on May 3 at the Capital City Club in Montgomery.
