This competition is open to all staff and consumers of any American Indian Vocational Rehabilitation programs in Indian Country!
The competition will be judged on how well the entry portrays this year’s mid-year conference theme: “We are CANAR: United as Warriors – Telling Our Stories” theme represents the concept that CANAR’s strength is drawn from all of its members collectively. Sharing our stories is traditional to Native lifestyles and the stories become powerful tools to unite us in our common goal as vocational rehabilitation professionals.
