Disability:IN Uinta County invites the community to submit nominations for 2021 Employer of the Year and Employee of the Year for the October Awards Celebration.

Over the last 23 years, the Disability:IN Uinta County has facilitated an awards event, the premier showcase of our community’s best disability-friendly businesses, recognition of employees with disabilities, and their demonstration of exceptional work ethic. This year is no exception. Disability:IN Uinta County will be hosting an awards celebration in Evanston on Wednesday, Oct. 20, with a celebration in Bridger Valley on Thursday, Oct. 21.

Take a moment to consider an employer you know who has excelled in promoting employment opportunities for persons with disabilities, and an employee with a disability who has overcome challenges and demonstrates a strong work ethic and inspires others and deserves recognition.

Nomination forms are available at or by contacting the Disability:IN Uinta County office located at 236 9th Street, by calling Wanda at (307)783-6302 or by sending an email to [email protected] with your nomination. We will contact you regarding your nomination if more details are needed. The nomination must be received by Sept. 29.
