This seems like something we should spread the word about on our campuses...

IBM Accessibility ODF Coding Challenge 2006

It's a contest for undergraduates, in which they learn about accessibility,
then either:

(a) develop extensible accessibility validation tool for word processing
documents created in Open Document Format (the emerging XML standard
document format for saving and exchanging office documents); or

(b) develop anything at all that addresses the theme of the competition
("practical applications that can seriously impact people's lives")
