Exciting Opportunity to Celebrate 100 Years of Occupational Therapy!
On September 10, 2015, the Tournament of Roses® Executive Committee accepted the Occupational Therapy Centennial Float as an official entry in the 2017 Annual Tournament of Rose® Parade. The Occupational Therapy Centennial Float will honor the 100-year history of the profession, representing over 350,000 occupational therapy practitioners and millions of consumers world-wide.   
To support the costs of float design and construction $300,000 needs to be raised. As part of our fundraising campaign, all occupational therapy academic programs in the country (161 OT professional programs and 113 OTA programs) will be asked to donate a minimum of $1,000 to help us meet this goal. The University of North Dakota has asked NDOTA to help spread the word to our members in order to allow everyone to get in on this exciting chance to promote our profession!
