The Irving Advisory Committee on Disabilities is preparing for this October’s Disabilities Awareness Month events. The annual poster contest, initiated in 2001, is open to all fourth-grade students living in Irving. Entries are due in the Parks and Recreation office at City Hall by Sept. 12. Teachers from Irving Independent School District schools are to submit their entries to Irving ISD Administration by 4:30 p.m. Sept. 12.
The Advisory Committee on Disabilities committee members, along with additional volunteers, will judge the poster entries on Sept. 16. Winners will be recognized at the Oct. 9 City Council meeting. All posters will be displayed at Baylor Medical Center, Irving during the month of October.
The Irving City Council created the Advisory Committee on Disabilities in 1999 to serve as a contact and voice of residents with disabilities, and to review and discuss matters referred to the committee by the City Council and the city manager. The committee also provides recommendations to the council on matters pertaining to disability issues in the city. Committee members serve the community for two-year terms, with a maximum of three terms. For more information or to receive assistance with a special need, call (972) 721-2533, or TDD (800) 735-2989.
