Congratulations to 4th grader Penny Keyes and her Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Amy
When Penny and Amy found out that Massachusetts A.G. Bell, a professional
affiliation for hearing loss, was having a logo contest for the upcoming
Cochlear Implant Convention, they got to work! As a team, they
collaborated by going through the writing process (in pictorial form):
brainstorming ideas, creating rough drafts, editing and revising, and
finalizing the logos. What a great language opportunity!
Only one logo was to be chosen among all the entries. Neither one of the
logos they submitted were initially picked. However, the judges thought
"the snail with the speech processor" logo was so great, they decided
to award it "first runner up" and will be using it for the Children's
Program at the conference. Below is the logo the Penny drew!
This is what Penny had said about the words on the logo..."I chose the
words to make the kids happy and make them feel special."
A BIG congratulations to Penny and Amy!!!!
