CCDHH for 2018

April 28 | 10:15 am - 2:00 pm

Communication Contest

for the

Deaf and Hard of Hearing

This contest is designed to offer young people who are deaf or hard of hearing the opportunity to present their thoughts in a public forum. This experience helps students develop the skills and confidence to present in sign or orally to a large audience. The program also provides a valuable opportunity to compete for a $2,500 college scholarship.

Students make a 4-5 minute presentation on the assigned topic.

The contest is open to young people through grade 12. Students must submit the results of an audiogram (or Cochlear Implant Programming Report) completed no longer than 24 months prior to the date of the contest by a qualified audiologist. Students must be certified to have an uncorrected hearing loss of 40 decibels or more, which must be supported by the audiogram (or CI Programming Report) in order to be eligible to compete. Students attending either public school or schools providing special services are eligible to enter if criteria are met.

Students may use sign language, an oral presentation or a combination of both to compete. Both styles are judged using the same criteria.

There will be a lunch provided for each contestant plus one other person. If there are more people with the contestant they will receive a discount off the $25 cost of lunch.
