The 2020  Holman Prize for Blind Ambition
<https://holman.lighthouse-sf.org/about/>  is requesting applications
through March 15.


Now in its 4th year, the LightHouse for the Blind in San Francisco's Holman
Prize for Blind Ambition <https://holman.lighthouse-sf.org/about/>  is an
international competition that is awarded annually to three blind
individuals who wish to push their limits. It is named for James Holman
<https://holman.lighthouse-sf.org/who-is-james-holman/> , a nineteenth
century blind explorer, who was the most prolific traveler before the era of
modern transportation. Each winner will receive up to $25,000 to support
their adventure. From traversing the Bosporus Straight via solo kayak

children and their families led by blind professionals

scientists to participate in the search for exoplanets by listening to space
<https://holman.lighthouse-sf.org/2019-yuma-decaux/> , our nine winners so
far (hailing from five countries on four continents), have each found unique
ways to forever change the world's perception of blindness.


A big idea, a quick application form and a 90-second pitch video are all
that is needed to apply. For inspiration, here is the
