For the eighth year, the KCTS Golden Apple Awards are recognizing programs and people making dramatic differences in education. They are honoring five individuals and four programs or initiatives with KCTS Golden Apple Awards.

DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking and Technology) has been selected to receive a Golden Apple Award in recognition of its efforts to maximize the academic and career success of people with disabilities in challenging fields, such as science, engineering, and technology. DO-IT is a collaboration between Computing & Communications, the College of Engineering, and the College of Education at the University of Washington.

Golden Apple Award winners will be presented with their awards on January 15, 2000 at a celebration in the Intiman Theater, Seattle. A videotape presenting the award winners will be regularly presented on KCTS TV.
