contest prizes, expansion of local programs,
and conferences.
The Governor's Committee functions pri-
marily as an educational and public relations
instrument to create a public awareness of
the problems faced by handicapped indi-
viduals in finding employment; to cooperate
with all groups, public and private, in pro-
moting services for the handicapped; and to
initiate and promote programs to stimulate
hiring the handicapped. Annual regional
conferences are held particularly in con-
junction with National Employ the Handi-
capped Week.
To reach all sections of the State, twenty-
four local committees have been organized,
one in each county and one in Baltimore.
The Governor's Committee acts as liaison
between the President's Committee and local
committees. To coordinate the program and
to keep committees informed on State and
national activities, a newsletter goes out to
over 300 volunteer members in the State.
The committee sponsors annual writing and
poster contests among high school juniors
and seniors as a means of arousing public
awareness of the employment and rehabili-
tation programs for Maryland's disabled
citizens. An annual Awards program recog-
nizes outstanding employees, citizens, and
handicapped individuals in the State.
In 1968, the Governor's Committee co-
sponsored legislation resulting in a law and
regulations establishing standards of facili-
ties for building public buildings which are
accessible for the handicapped. The Com-
mittee constantly disseminates information
regarding the regulations and their enforce-
ment and has introduced new legislation on
behalf of the handicapped.
