"Is There a Fine Line Between Optimism and Reality?"

What is CCDHH?


This contest offers an opportunity for children 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. Patterned after the Optimist Oratorical Contest, the Communication Contest For the Deaf and Hard of Hearing offers hearing impaired youth the chance to compete in speech or sign language.

The Optimist International Foundations fund a $2,500 scholarship to any District that meets the minimum participation criteria.
