Text: We Live in Tetra Nation

About the 2022 Campaign

Each year, TetraNation recognizes the work of Tetra Society’s nearly 300 volunteers across Canada. This year’s TetraNation competition is running from February 1st to April 23rd. We will announce the winning videos during National Volunteer Week Tetra’s volunteer network is so incredibly giving of their time and talent as they create customized assistive devices that address barriers in the lived environments of people with disabilities.

Starting on February 1st, we’ll be releasing 10 videos every 2 weeks. Make sure to vote for your favourite(s). Once the two weeks have passed, the next 10 videos will be released, for their turn in the spotlight. 

After all 50 videos have had their two weeks, we’ll open up all entrants for the final two weeks of the contest, which culminates during National Volunteers Week April 24-30, where we will be announcing the winners on ConnecTogether

Be sure to like Tetra Society of North America’s Facebook and follow our Instagram page and YouTube channel for updates throughout the competition. 

Contest is finished!

Description: Children's Planter Boxes (Ottawa): A school needed a raised garden that is fully accessible for young learners with disabilities and contacted Tetra for assistance. The volunteer working on the project constructed a two-height table with inset garden bins. This allows children to either stand and sit while gardening. Seven plots, including three specifically for people in wheelchairs, allow for simultaneous gardening. Gardening bins tilt towards the gardener for easier access for everyone.
