Contests for deaf and hard-of-hearing
Deaf and hard-of-hearing students are eligible to compete for cash prizes and more in national contests sponsored by Rochester Institute of Technology, home to the National Technical Institute for the Deaf.
The SpiRIT Writing Contest, now in its seventh year, encourages deaf and hard-of-hearing high school students to use the power of the written word. The contest will award the winners -- two 10th- and two 11th-graders -- their choice of a scholarship and travel expenses to the Explore Your Future program at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, or $500. Explore Your Future is a six-day summer career exploration program for deaf and hard-of-hearing students that gives them the opportunity to sample different careers as well as college life.
Complete contest guidelines and entry information are available at www.rit.edu/NTID/WritingContestNR. For more information, email WritingContest@ntid.rit.edu or call 585-475-7695 (voice) or videophone 585-286-4555.
The second national competition is Rochester’s annual Digital Arts, Film, and Animation Competition for high school students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. Students in grades 9-12 can compete for a $250 cash prize in each category.
The competition recognizes students’ artistic expression with awards in the following categories: film, graphic media, interactive media, photo imaging, 3-D animation, and Web page design. Students may submit up to two entries.
Online entry forms, contest rules, and other details are available at www.rit.edu/NTID/ArtsNR.
The deadline to enter either competition is Monday, March 17.
