Oticon focus on people awards

2019 Focus On
People Awards




Changing attitudes, opening doors

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.

When Oticon created the Focus on People Awards in 1997, it was the first national awards program to recognize everyday people doing amazing things, who also happened to have hearing loss. Today, the program continues to celebrate students, adults, advocates and hearing care professionals who show that hearing loss does not limit a person’s ability to achieve, contribute and excel.

Since 1997, this national awards competition has honored more than 280 outstanding people with hearing loss. 

Winners in each of the four categories receive prizes and national recognition that creates awareness, changes attitudes and opens doors of opportunity for all people with hearing loss.

 

Thank you for your nominations! Stay tuned — finalists will be announced in August!
