“Through the Yes I Can! Awards, students with disabilities -- some for the first time in their lives -- are recognized for their accomplishments. The Yes I Can! Awards honor students with disabilities who have excelled in one of nine categories:
• Arts• Academics• Athletics
• Community Service• Employment• Extracurricular Activities
• Independant Living Skills• Self Advocacy• Technology
Each Yes I Can! winner has a special moment in the spotlight as he or she is presented with a statue and the audience learns of the student’s accomplishments at the Yes I Can! Awards Ceremony, held at CEC’s Annual Convention & Expo. The winners and their families are also treated to a special field trip. Plus, each student who is nominated receives a Certificate of Accomplishment.
Nominate a student(s) who deserves recognition for his or her achievements.
