Celebrating 20 Years of 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. More than 20 years later, the program continues to create awareness that changes attitudes and opens doors of opportunity for all people with hearing loss.
Since 1997, this national awards competition has honored more than 270 outstanding people with hearing loss.
Winners in each of the four categories receive prizes and national recognition that helps to create awareness, change attitudes and open doors of opportunity for all people with hearing loss.
