Stavros' Annual Access Awards

Every year Stavros sends a survey to consumers asking for nominations for local places that really go the extra mile for people with disabilities.  A dedicated group of staff and volunteers review the nominations and conduct site visits. Although we know no place is perfect these are the places we found to have done wonderful things for access.
