First of all, we would like to thank all of the bloggers who wrote written essays and vloggers who created video clips to be a part of the DeafRead’s “Through Deaf Eyes” contest! We enjoyed reading all of the writings and watching video clips that were submitted to us.
We do appreciate and know how much work it can take to write up an excellent essay as well as creating an amazing video clip.
All of the editors reviewed all 20 of them and we voted for each blog entry and vlog video entry that we thought was the best of each. Yes, it was a difficult decision for all of us but we managed to select a winner!
Without further ado, we proudly announce that the winners of the DeafRead’s “Through Deaf Eyes” contest are as follows:
The Best Blog Essay Entry goes to:
“Through Deaf Eyes: Review” by BrownEyedGirl65’s (BEG) blog, What That You Said?
The Best Vlog Video Clip goes to:
“Part I: Through Deaf Family’s Eyes on PBS Through Deaf Eyes” by Barbara DiGiovanni’s vlog, Deaf Progressivism: Making Strides Toward Deaf Pride
DeafRead congratulates to BEG and Barb for winning the contest! Both winners of each best blog and vlog response will receive the book, “Through Deaf Eyes”. ($40 dollar value)
