After hearing from several members who work closely with the deaf and hard of hearing community, Optimist International will now allow a new CCDHH topic as an acceptable revision to the current topic. Both topics will be accepted for the 2012-2013 CCDHH Contest only. This will not affect the Oratorical Contest in any way.
The current topic is “Why My Voice is Important.” Also acceptable is “Why My Opinions are Important.”
