If you are a high school student with a hearing loss, you could win a $500 cash prize for your writing. It’s one of the items given away by the Explore Your Future program at RIT's National Technical Institute for the Deaf. Other prizes include a scholarship and travel expenses to the NTID. You must be in grade sophomore or junior to enter the 4th annual Rochester Institute of Technology SpiRIT Writing Contest. You have until March 15th to enter. That means coming up with a short story or poem, a writing sample and a personal reflection. Awards will be handed out this summer at RID.
Jaimie Sloan (Merkel, Texas) and Laruen Aggen (Algonquin, Illinois) won last year.
