dear colleagues

apologies is this is of no interest or for any cross-posting

even though the *AccessAbility Project is a small venture, we wanted  
to acknowledge and celebrate the international persons with  
disabilities day as devised by the UN.  after some discussions, we hit  
on the idea of a prize quiz with the winner receiving 50 book tokens.  
it is not too complicated and most of the answers can be found via the  
internet although a few questions are specific to the *AccessAbility  
Project.  whilst a prize quiz is not very exciting, I am hoping that  
it is accessible for the majority of people who
would like to have a go - it is all electronic and the answers are  
simply emailed back to me. I am aware that some people view the UN in  
a negative light but I do think in this case we should acknowledge and  
celebrate an international day in the absence of a UK day.

we are hoping that people who do not generally consider disability  
issues and hopefully raise awareness that although our disabled young  
people can access all types and levels of education, this is not the  
case in other countries. the quiz may also enable a few more disabled  
youngsters to view a university education as a viable career choice  
and that the barriers within higher education are diminishing each  
year - even though there is major drama with DSA payments etc. there  
are also a few web links attached to the quiz where people can find  
more information about this event. we are also aiming to do something  
each year to acknowledge this day, and hopefully we can do something  
different
each year. suggestions for different ways of acknowledging this day  
are very welcome.

the quiz can be found on our website home page (address under  
electronic signature) and is available until 3rd january. it is  
electronic and people can do a bit at a time. there is no age limit  
and everybody is welcome to have a go - except the *AccessAbility  
Ambassadors as they will know the vast majority of the answers.   
please feel free to circulate the quiz to colleagues and friends if  
you would like to do so in addition to having a go yourselves. good  
luck!

regards
melanie
