    Five SUNY Oswego students won a national competition for their inclusive web design at VoteOswego.com.

    The website's goal is to "help members of the Oswego community make an impact in all elections by stressing the importance of political participation no matter the political affiliation."

    Under the mentorship of graphic design faculty member Rececca Mushtare, the students won the national AIR-U competition for accessibility in web design.

    "Knowbility" sponsored the University Accessibility Internet Rally to encourage students to work toward a more inclusive digital web for all.

    The organization's website says they offer, "digital accessibility consulting, training, and advocacy to support equal access for all."

    The group of students: Mariana Diaz, Kimberly Grunden, Nicole Lightfoot, Nick Long and Heng-Hao Pu worked with a client, political science faculty member Allison Rank's "Vote Oswego" class for this project.
