ATIA Video Contest Results

Hello Everyone

The results came in for the ATIA (Assistive Technology Industry Association) video contest.  I am happy to say that ATIA was very very happy with their contest.  They were able to accomplish their goal of increasing awareness of Assistive Technology for those of us that utilize them in our daily lives, through the youtube video contest.

I was delighted and honored that my video received an “honorable mention” award.  Furthermore, I was glad to do my small part in creating awareness of using Assistive Listening Technology as a hard of hearing person.

Please do not be ashamed to use Assistive Listening Technology.  They only enhance our listening experience and make our life  a little easier. 

The following link is the “The LifeSaver”  the award winning “honorable mention” video about using my Fm Listening System, to compete with at Horse shows.  Share with anyone that needs more information.

BROADCAST AT

Congratulations on your award winning video entry!

The ATIA AT Video YouTube Contest closed on 8/31/09. There were 29 videos posted in the ATIA Group Contest area with over 95 members joining the group.  The goal of the contest was to Broadcast AT and raise awareness around the world of the power of assistive technology.  With over 20,000 views recorded the contest achieved its goal!  The videos show a broad range of assistive technologies and feature individuals of different ages from toddlers to adults.  Each video tells a story of how an individual with a disability uses assistive technology to communicate, learn, work, play and live independently. 

ATIA congratulates everyone who participated in the contest.  Their inspiring stories are seen and told in the videos.  

 Your video, The Life Saver, was given the ATIA AT Video YouTube Contest Honorable Mention.  

We will be posting your award winning video with the following short description on the main ATIA web site with a link from the YouTube Contest area: The Life Saver video – featuring Suzanna who was born with Profound Hearing Loss and recently became a bilateral cochlear implant wearer. Suzanna is able to compete in the highly competitive world of Arabian Horse Shows with a Personal Fin System.

All of the award-winning videos will be showcased at the upcoming ATIA 2009 Chicago Conference (October 28-31, 2009) held at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center. ATIA and Easter Seals are hosting special Halloween activities for kids with disabilities and their families on Saturday, October 31 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.  If you are able to visit with us at the conference, please let us know ahead of time so we can meet with you and give you our personal congratulations.

 Thank you once again for participating in this contest and for helping ATIA Broadcast AT around the world.
