Communications Contest for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Topic for the 2020-21 school year is:

 "Healing the World with Optimism"

This contest offers an opportunity for students who are Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing to present their thoughts in the community, gaining skills, which can only come from signing or speaking to a large audience.
