May is Better Hearing and Speech Month!

Do your friends, coworkers, family members, or community members know what you- do? REALLY know what you do? Each year, the month of May is Better Hearing and Speech Month (MBHSM) and is the perfect time to share what it is that our professions do.

Enter the May is Better Hearing and Speech Month Photo Contest!

Enter the May Is Better Hearing and Speech Month (MBHSM) photo contest, and if you win first, second or third place, you will receive an Amazon gift card!  We will award $150 to first-place, $100 to second-place, and $50 to third-place.

The goal of MBHSM is to increase awareness of communication and swallowing disorders affecting individuals across the lifespan in Texas. Now it is time that we as speech-language pathologists and audiologists promote what we do to improve the quality of life for those affected by communication and related disorders.

Last year, we recognized three speech-pathologists who entered photos and flyers highlighting the special presentation, activities, and decorations they used with clients and students of all ages. We encourage both speech-language pathologists and audiologists to participate!

Take a photo depicting how you celebrate MBHSM and increased awareness for communication and related disorders.  Submit your name, organization, city, email address, phone number and photo to awoods2@twu.edu.  Winning photographs along with the winner’s name, organization and city may be published in the Communicologist. Your photos must be submitted by May 31 before 11:59 p.m. Once again, we will aware first-, second-, and third-place winners with Amazon gift cards. The final decision will be made on June 1. Winners will be notified June 2 and must respond by June 4 to claim their prize.

Be sure to “like” the Texas Speech-Language-Hearing Association (TSHA) on Facebook so you can receive updates and reminders about the contest. Have fun, and get creative!
