Valencia Fu, a seventh-grade student at Roberto Clemente Middle School in Germantown, Md., won top honors for her submission in ASHA’s 2011 Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM) video contest. For the contest—inspired by the Oscar-winning movie “The King’s Speech”—entrants were invited to submit an original YouTube video depicting what it’s like to be a person who has difficulty speaking or hearing, showing how important it is to understand how that person feels, and teaching to accept, respect, and help those who have communication challenges.
In her first-place video, Fu creatively portrays the isolation, misunderstanding, and loneliness a person with a communication disorder may feel and how a person can get help. Fu wrote and produced the video.
Second place was awarded to ASHA member and speech-language pathologist Susan Kasal of Hutchinson, Minn., for “Corey’s Speech.” Taking third place was “The Children’s Speech—Showing We Care in Just Three Words” by the fifth-grade class at Glen Park Elementary in New Berlin, Wis., and submitted by SLP Heidi Harrmann.
The winning videos, judged on creativity, message, and relevance to the topic, can be found at ASHA’s Better Hearing and Speech website.
