The "I Love Learning Because..." Deaf Students Art Contest, open to American deaf and hard-of-hearing students ages 5 through 18, was designed to encourage artistic expression and to encourage students to think about learning. The contest was held as part of Sorenson's annual Deaf Awareness Month online celebration, presented in September. The winners were announced as part of Sorenson's celebration of deaf schools and learning.
"Sorenson received many outstanding contest entries this year," notes Ron Burdett, vice president of community relations for Sorenson Communications. "We want to thank all those who participated!"
"Sorenson's Deaf Awareness Month seeks to preserve and document Deaf history as well as current Deaf culture so today's and future generations of deaf and hearing people can learn from it," says Burdett.
