Noisy Planet’s Partner Sponsors Contest for Kids and Teens

Do you know creative children who can help to spread the message that kids’ hearing is worth protecting? Ask them to enter the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s (ASHA’s) Listen to Your Buds Public Service Announcement (PSA) contest. ASHA is a valued Noisy Planet partner.

ASHA’s contest, open to kids who are 8-18 years old, seeks submissions of 30- to 60-second audio or video PSAs that creatively spread the “safe listening” message. Hurry! The deadline to enter a PSA is March 9.
