National Writing Contest for High School Students with Hearing Loss

High school sophomores and juniors who are deaf or hard of hearing can use the power of words to express their feelings and win prizes in the 5th annual Rochester Institute of Technology SpiRIT Writing Contest.
Winners will have their choice of a scholarship and travel expenses to the Explore Your Future program at RIT’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID), or a $500 cash prize. EYF 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.
   Entries will include creative writing such as a short story or poem, a short writing sample and a personal reflection.
  The deadline to enter this year’s competition is March 15, 2010. For complete contest guidelines and entry information, visit
