2011 BHSM Video Contest Winners
To celebrate Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM), ASHA sponsored its annual video contest. The inspiration for this year's theme was the Oscar-award-winning movie "The King's Speech." Contestants were tasked with making an original video about what it is like to be a person who has difficulty speaking or hearing, to show how important it is to understand how that person feels, and how to help them. Videos were evaluated on originality, creativity, and relevance to the topic. Congratulations to the winners!

2nd place: "Corey's Speech" submitted by Susan Kasal. Corey wins an MP3 player with Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones from Califone International, along with $125.00 and an award certificate.
3rd place: "The Children's Speech—Showing we care in just 3 words" submitted by Heidi Harrmann and Mrs. Bauer's 5th grade class at Glen Park Elementary in New Berlin, Wisconsin. They win $75.00 and an award certificate.
