Maddak Inc calls on occupational therapy professionals and students to submit their best design ideas for new products to assist patients with disabilities or recovering from illnesses.

The Maddak Awards Program, held during the American Occupational Therapy Association’s (AOTA) annual conference, awards cash prizes for first, second, or third place winners in either the Professional or Student categories, judged by a panel of volunteer occupational therapists.

As an added incentive to enter, the Maddak Intercollegiate Challenge was added in 2014 to the Annual Maddak Awards Program to spur occupational therapy schools and students to compete against each other for bragging rights and to win the Intercollegiate Challenge trophy, according to a media release from Maddak Inc.

The trophy will be awarded based on a point system that takes into consideration the number of entries in the Student category received from each school. Bonus points will be given to the school whose student entry wins first place, per the release.

The AOTA annual conference will be held April 7-10 in Chicago. Deadline to enter the Maddak Awards Program is March 28.
