In the Limelight Video Contest/Award

Whether it’s as a student, intern, mid-level manager, or high-level executive, individuals with disabilities bring a unique perspective and diverse talents to the world, universities, and the workplace each and every day. The Lime Connect 'In the Limelight' video contest aims to highlight that by showcasing how university students and professionals are rebranding disability through achievement. 

Help us change the narrative by sharing your story of how you are living, working, and thriving as an individual who happens to have a disability.

Awards are funded by an unrestricted gift from Google.  This contest was inspired by Lime Connect special advisor, Vint Cerf – Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist, “One of the Fathers of the Internet,".
