ASU student takes 2nd in disabilities poster contest

Athens State University art student Jeanette Blasios has won second place in the 2013 Ability Counts Poster Journalism Competition.

Blasios will be honored, along with other state winners, at an awards luncheon May 3 at the Capital City Club in Montgomery. She will receive $200, a certificate, and a citation for meritorious service presented by her professor, Pamela Keller.

The Alabama Governor’s Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities sponsors the annual contest. It focuses on the abilities of Alabamians with disabilities and promotes a greater awareness of the contributions 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. Blasios won the postsecondary division.

AGCEPD is a program of the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services, whose mission is to enable Alabama’s children and adults with disabilities to achieve their maximum potential.
