One of the things everyone looks forward to at the annual ACB national conference and convention is learning who won the awards! Each year, the awards committee, the Board of Publications, the Durward K. McDaniel Fund Committee, and the Audio Description Project send out information about the criteria for their awards. The information is also published in “The ACB Braille Forum,” usually in January.
