DHH Students in Grades 6-12 engage in a province-wide Communication Competition for Deaf & Hard of Hearing (Oral and ASL signing groups) to compete for honoraria and other exciting gifts.
DHH students (even if they aren't competing), Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and the Deaf community are welcome to attend. Come and support our DHH students. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you're attending so that we can cater for lunch.
February 19, 2018: We have recently received confirmation from the Pacific Northwest Optimist planning committee that the district level competition usually held in May in the USA has been moved to Vancouver. They have decided to award the prize money for the district level at the local level. The $150 honoraria have now been replaced with a district level scholarship of $2,500 each for the Oral and ASL categories.
Location: Michael J. Fox Theatre
