Clark County is seeking business and individual nominations for its annual Clark County Disability Employment Awareness Month awards.

The awards honor the role individuals with developmental disabilities have in achieving a dynamic, productive workforce and recognize the leadership of the business community. The event also celebrates October as National Disability Employment Awareness Month.

Awards will be given in the following categories: Large employer (50 or more local employees); small employer (49 or less local employees); employee with a developmental/intellectual disability; and the Dennis Campbell Outstanding Service Award for outstanding service to improving the lives of individuals with developmental/intellectual disabilities.

Also, the David Hanawalt Service Award will go to an employment specialist who demonstrates service to their clients above and beyond the client’s expectations, exceeds the contractual expectations and promotes client success and growth.

Recipients will be honored at the 23rd Annual Disability Employment Awareness Month celebration on Oct. 11. The ceremony starts with a networking happening from 4-4:30 p.m. followed by the ceremony from 4:30-6 p.m.
