A Virtual Honor

The DO-IT program (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology) has been named a finalist in the first National Information Infrastructure Awards, which recognizes outstanding achievement using the information highway. DO-IT was one of 36 finalists chosen from more than 500 entries via a "virtual judging system" linking more than 130 judges nationwide. DO-IT enables high school students with disabilities to explore careers in science, engineering and mathematics. The students learn to use technology to become more independent and productive.
