Why enter the CCDHH?

The PNW District-Optimist International Communications Contest for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (CCDHH) was held on May 19, 2012 in Newport, Oregon. A young, but veteran competitor was Daniel Leigmann of Kelowna, British Columbia. I discovered this video on YouTube where Daniel discusses why he likes to compete in the contest.

Spoiler alert: It's not about the scholarship! It is about the opportunity to improve oneself.



Ken Ryan served as the co-chair of the event for Canada, joining Kirk Farnsworth for the US. Ken provided the following information about the contest.
We split the CCDHH into two catagories, and the following are the results:
Signing – a.s.l.
First Cameron Epp – Langley B.C.
SECOND KEVIN MOUNTAIN – BURNABY B.C.
THIRD LAUREN MARSHALL – IDAHO
ORAL
FIRST DANIEL LEIGMANN – KELOWNA B.C.
ECOND ANDREW WESTERLUND – NORTH VANCOUVER
THIRD CASSIDY FLAKE – IDAHO

(The information was copied and pasted from Ken's message. I'm not sure if the capitalization was significant, so I left it intact.)
