Knowbility's OpenAIR (Accessibility Internet Rally) Competition
Date: February 8 - May 15, 2018
OpenAIR is an annual, competitive program that trains teams of professional web designers, web design students and government agencies on web accessibility standards. The participating teams then take the tools they have learned to create or improve the websites for their assigned nonprofit organizations. The websites created are then assessed by a panel of expert judges, who determine which developer team has the best and most accessible sites, and a winner is chosen!
OpenAIR is not only an exciting way to challenge and build rapport among developers and designers, it's also a fun and unique way to have companies engage with the community, by helping nonprofits reach more individuals by having accessible websites!
