The Oticon Focus on People Awards recognize outstanding people who are helping to show that hearing loss does not limit a person’s ability to make a positive difference in their families, communities, or the world.
Life-changing technology opens a world of possibilities for people with hearing loss. The Oticon Focus on People Awards honor the remarkable individuals who have turned those possibilities into realities to make the world a better place for all of us. This one-of-a-kind national awards competition has honored more than 300 outstanding people with hearing loss from across the US.
This year, a record 15,000+ votes were cast by people across the US to select our first, second and third place winners — a testament to the outstanding achievements of our 12 winners! Each serves as a role model, helping to create awareness and change attitudes that can open doors of opportunity for all, but especially for people with hearing loss. On February 24, we celebrated their achievements and contributions at a special Awards ceremony.
